To install Bamboo Standalone on Windows,

Step 1. Download and install Bamboo Standalone

Bamboo Standalone for Windows is available for download here. You can choose the Windows Installer (.exe)  or the  Windows Archive (.zip).

Windows Installer (.exe)

  1. Launch the Bamboo Windows installer (atlassian-bamboo-x.x-standalone.exe) to begin the installation wizard.
  2. The installer requires you to specify two directories:
    • Bamboo installation directory — This is the directory where Bamboo's application files will be installed. The default is:
      C:/Program Files/Bamboo
    • Bamboo home directory — This is the directory where Bamboo will store its configuration data. If the directory you specify doesn't exist, Bamboo will create the directory when it launches. The default is: 
      C:/Documents and Settings/<current-user>/Bamboo-home

      You must use forward-slashes in your directory path. Backslashes are not recognised by Bamboo. Please ensure that the Bamboo home directory is not located inside the Bamboo installation directory

Windows Archive (.zip)

Warning: Some unzip programs cause errors

Some archive-extract programs cause errors when unzipping the Bamboo archive file. We highly recommend that you use the free 7Zip archive-extract program. If in doubt, download the '32-bit .exe' version.

  1. To install Bamboo using the Windows archive version (, you need to extract the files to a Bamboo installation directory of your choice. By default, the root directory in your zip file is named "Bamboo".
  2. You will also need to setup your Bamboo home directory — this is the directory where Bamboo will store its root configuration data. To do this, edit the file named  in the  Bamboo/webapp/WEB-INF/classes  directory. In this file, insert the property "bamboo.home", with an absolute path to your Bamboo home directory. Your file should look something like this:
    Alternatively, you can specify an environment variable 'BAMBOO_HOME' which specifies the absolute path to your {BAMBOO_HOME} directory. Bamboo will check if an environment variable is defined.
  3. If you are going to use Bamboo remote agents, set the following in the  file in the  <Bamboo installation directory>/webapp/WEB-INF/classes  directory:
    • replace 'localhost' with the real host name or IP address of your Bamboo server.
    • if port number 54663 is already in use, specify a different port number.

Step 2. Launch Bamboo

Once Bamboo is installed on your machine, you can launch the application either via the Start Menu (if you have used the self installer), or by running the batch files available in the root of the Bamboo installation directory. You can run Bamboo in two modes: either in the console, or as a Windows service

Running Bamboo as a service in Windows Vista

Bamboo ships with a service wrapper in Windows and by default, the wrapper installs itself as the NT SYSTEM user.
In Vista the temporary directory System Variable is not available to untrusted apps. In order to run Bamboo as service, you need to run Bamboo as a non-system user, as per this document.

Bamboo comes with the following batch files:

  • BambooConsole.bat — this starts Bamboo in a Windows console.
  • InstallAsService.bat — this installs Bamboo as a Windows service. Note that this will not start Bamboo.
  • StartBamboo.bat — this starts your installed Bamboo Windows service.
  • StopBamboo.bat — this stops your installed Bamboo Windows service
  • UninstallService.bat — this un-installs the Bamboo Windows service from your machine. Note that your Bamboo installation still remains.

Once Bamboo has started, you can access it by going to your web browser and entering the default address: http://localhost:8085/

Running Bamboo as a Service

The default behaviour in Windows is to start the service under the 'SYSTEM' user when Bamboo starts up. You can change this behaviour from the 'Services' console available via the 'Control Panel'. Please note, you may need to uninstall the service and re-install it again, if you have just upgraded or re-installed Bamboo.

Launching Bamboo on a Windows x64 Platform

If you wish to run Bamboo on a Windows x64 platform, you must launch Bamboo by running 'BambooConsole.bat'. The win 32-bit based wrapper will throw an error, however Bamboo can still be used as normal.

If you wish to stop Bamboo, open the terminal that 'BambooConsole.bat' is running in and press 'Ctrl-C'.

Step 3. Configure Bamboo
