Your desktop short cut should point at the acs launch_win-64.exe. file.
Always best to start ACS with the launch script rather then just starting
a JVM.

Been doing this tinkering on a spare Win10 desktop

So I added the JAVA_HOME even though what I read said it was only for
the
java development kit.

Now the desktop shortcut to the .hod file works.

But the desktop shortcut to acsbundle.jar does NOT work. It's asking
for
an app. There is no file association for .jar.

What is the proper thing to put there? My Win7 desktop associates it
with
"Java(TM) Platform SE Binary" which is Oracle. I right-click the .jar
file
and point it to java.exe, but it doesn't "take".
