This happens with any form of java - Oracle Java, OpenJDK, AdoptOpenJDK


Release : 12.3



The .jar files should not be used to run batch mode utilities, instead use the .exe or .sh files


With 12.3, the java .jar files should not be used for batch mode for utilities anymore. 

On windows, the .exe should be used instead, changing a command line command like this:

[Full path to java]\java -jar ucybdbre.jar -B -S0000


ucybdbre.exe -B -S0000
