Windows exe installer fails to start GeoServer

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.

Thanks for the reminder. Yes, this was still open, pending porting the fix to master.
Fix has now been ported to master, and I have closed the ticket.
