JMeter: errorlevel = -1073741819 when running test via CMD


I am trying to run some performance tests via CMD. It is a pretty simple environment. We launch a Jenkins build with testing parameter and the Jenkins slave calls PSExec with jmeter command on a remote VM.

Whenever I try to run the tests (either with complete flow from Jenkins or directly from CMD) I get the following error:

Press any key to continue . . .

As far as I've read on the internet, this error is specific for Access violation.

This is the command I use for starting the test:

jmeter_path\bin>jmeter -n -t jmeter_path\bin\tests\Test.jmx -Jparam1=%param1% -l \\remote_ip\Results_Build_115\Results.csv -j \\remote_ip\Results_Build_115\jmeter.log -e -o \\remote_ip\Results_Build_115\HTMLReport

Later Edit:

Here is the error from Event Viewer:

  • Running tests from GUID work as expected
  • Result folder is on a remote VM with full read/write access. The result folder is generated before running tests.
  • I get the same error even if I run tests directly from CMD
  • I have a total of 19 params in the call (didn't include them in the above example)
  • OS: Windows 10
