Thats right. Its evident that the problem happens on this specific line. In the past week, there have been a couple of posts where similar issue was observed which resulted in the run.bat file terminating without any messages. The cause for that behaviour was turned out to be JAVA_HOME value not being properly set. In your case though the JAVA_HOME value and the output of %JAVA% -version look good. So that does not seem to be the issue.

The second reason why this line might fail is related to 'findstr' not being in the PATH env variable (the link that i posted in my first reply http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=FindstrCommandNotFound ). Are you sure the 'findstr' is be on the PATH. You can find it under  windows\system32 folder on your system. If you dont have it in the PATH then you will have to add it as follows(just an example):

set PATH=%PATH%;C:\windows\system32 

Other than this at this point, i dont see any other reason why this should fail. I havent yet installed JBoss4.2.2 (i have 4.2.1) nor do i have JDK1.6, but i dont see anything that might have changed in 4.2.2 which might be causing this issue.
