    I just did a fresh install of Windows 7 and backed up all my server info on my external drive then brought it back over to my reformatted drive.

    I've never had any issues before but now when I click my start batch file I see the cmd pop up for a fraction of a second then immediately disappear. I've tried recreating my batch file, redownloading my craftbukkit.jar file, have even tried running a different world and creating a new one in case my backup was corrupted. Nothing changes.

    I've reconfigured all my port forwarding settings and made my ip static again, I've done literally everything I can think of. It doesn't seem like any of this could be the issue though since I remember first starting up my server even when my settings were wrong the command prompt at least OPENED and didn't just crash like this.

    Any idea what could be happening? The only reason I did a fresh install of windows was so Minecraft would run smoothly like it used to a year ago but now I can't play my server at all...

    You could write PAUSE to last line of .bat file so you could see what the problem is.

    putting pause at the end doesnt do anything, it just asks you to "press any key to continue" once you try to stop the server using the /stop command. Leaving it out will run the server properly.

    Well if there is problem with launching java/bukkit it will say it in that console. Without PAUSE you can't read it.

    This is what's in my .bat file:

    java -Xms1021M -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar

    it's the same one I've used for as long as I can remember using a bukkit server.

    Ok, here's what to do:
    1. Go to Start > Computer > [Right Click] Properties > Advanced System Settings > Environment Variables > System Variables > New.
    2. Type the Variable Name as "PATH" (excl. quotation marks) and Variable Value as "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre#\bin" (excl. quotation marks) and replace the # with a 6 or 7, depending on the version of Java you are running (I recommend you use Java 7
    3. Save everything and close
    4. Run your batch file again
