      Description

      When you use the Windows installer to install geoserver and opt for manual start the generated startup.bat fails to start GeoServer with the message:

      G:\Program Files (x86)\GeoServer 2.9-RC1\bin>call "G:\java\jre\bin\java.exe" -DGY=geoserver -Djetty.port=8080 -Djetty.logs="G:\Program Files (x86)\GeoServer 2.9
      WARNING: Module not found [ssl]
      WARNING: Nothing to start, exiting ...

      Usage: java -jar start.jar [options] [properties] [configs]
      java -jar start.jar --help # for more information

      Can be fixed by adding

      -Djetty.base="G:/Program Files (x86)/GeoServer 2.9-RC1/"

      to the start command so that Jetty finds start.ini - I guess there is a template somewhere that needs this added.
