[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Problems with service starting

Our organization is installing ASpace. I have followed the directions for install, running ASpace against MYSQL, and installing ASpace as a Windows Service.

Database has been created, ArchivesSpaceService and ArchivesSpaceServicew have been created, with one hitch.

When service.bat is run, it creates the two files but includes the line, "There was a problem installing the service...please check the settings."
If I run ArchivesSpaceServicew the service is stopped, attempting to launch it does not work and the log file contains the lines:
[2017-02-01 13:53:27] [error] [ 4184] Failed to execute process
[2017-02-01 13:53:27] [error] [ 4184] The directory name is invalid.
[2017-02-01 13:53:27] [error] [ 4184] ServiceStart returned 5
[2017-02-01 13:53:27] [error] [ 4184] The directory name is invalid.
[2017-02-01 13:53:27] [info]  [ 5180] Run service finished.
[2017-02-01 13:53:27] [info]  [ 5180] Commons Daemon procrun finished

I am not sure what directory it is looking for, and the only thing that I had different than the instructions is where Java resides (I have another application that uses Java and MySQL where Java is installed as Oracle\Java\Javapath).

Any assistance here?
