Description logox01 2018-02-23 07:33:36 UTC

I'm very happy about the change to define the user specific settings in a separate setenv.bat (no need to change the jmeter.bat anymore).

But currently I do need to update the jmeter.bat as well, because the JMETER_HOME directory does not point to the jmeter directory.
That happens if you don't start the jmeter.bat directly, but from another location (we use separate startup batch files within the testplan directory to define testplan specific parameters).

It would be great if you could define another fallback for setting the correct JMETER_HOME direcotry:

rem Guess JMETER_HOME if not defined
set "CURRENT_DIR=%cd%"
if not "%JMETER_HOME%" == "" goto gotHome
if exist "%JMETER_HOME%\bin\jmeter.bat" goto okHome
cd ..
set "JMETER_HOME=%cd%"
if exist "%JMETER_HOME%\bin\jmeter.bat" goto okHome
set JMETER_HOME=%~dp0\..

Thank you

Thanks for your contribution. This will be included in v4.1

It would be nice, if you could verify, that this fixes your problems.

Try to guess JMETER_HOME correctly, when jmeter.bat is called from a batch file in another directory.

I just tested the new jmeter.bat (r1825328).

This line:

set "%JMETER_HOME%=%~dp0\.."

needs to be replaced by that:

set "JMETER_HOME=%~dp0\.."

Best regards

Thanks for fixing the issue.
I successfully retested it with 4.1 r1825385.

IMO this issue is so critical that worth immediate minor release of JMeter...

Hi Andrei,
What is so critical about it ?
I ‘ve tested jmeter 4.0 on windows and it didn’t hurt me that much.

but I may have missed something.

If we release a minor version, there is a risk if it’s nightly as we have hugely changed Http following removal of deprecated APIs and although we have been using it a lot in our team in scripting, we didn’t have yet the occasion to do a massive load test to ensure no issue appears.

Or maybe you’d like to only release this hotfix ?
