NiFi registry is not supported on Windows at this point in time. Please have a look at NiFi Registry Admin Guide for more details

I am using Nifi Registry installed on Windows Server and Windows 10

It works good from WSL (Ubuntu, Debian) on Windows 10. Or on Windows Server 2016 I used cygwin (there is no WSL on this server version)

1) I added in .bash_profile in WSL or cygwin commands to export path of Java and start Nifi Registry on boot
For example for cygwin:



export JAVA_HOME=/cygdrive/c/'Program Files'/Java/jdk1.8.0_261 
export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH 
/cygdrive/d/nifi-registry-0.7.0/bin/ start



(cygwin use the same java folder as windows system)

2) And than saved a .vbs script to run cygwin on Windows boot:



Set ws = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") "c:\cygwin64\cygwin.bat", vbhide



3) And put this script to autorun folder in Windows:
win + R -> shell:startup

So now after Windows boot cygwin starting on background with Nifi Registry on board  

I also tried to find the way how to run cygwin with nssm but it was unsuccessfully
