URGENT - Install JBOSS 7.0.2 on Windows Server 2008 R2

My client asked to install JBOSS 7.0.2 on Windows Server 2008 R2.
I have never done it before and would appreciate some basic info where do I start.
I ended up on this page http://www.jboss.org/jbossas/downloads/ which has all the different types of installers. How do I know which one I need?
All I know so far is that JBOSS is needed for web server setup and needs to run on port 1080
Any gotchas I need to be aware when installing on Server 2008 R2 or any other components I will need to make it work?

Thank you so much!

The important thing to remember is that the JVM must be compatible with Server 2008 R2. Check the release notes listed on the download page. Java SE 7 can be used with JBoss AS 7.
The Getting Started Guide will answer all of you basic questions. Here is a link:

There is nothing different for setting up JBoss AS on Windows Server 2008 R2 than on any other Windows machine. I have seen Issues but they were simply the wrong version of Java installed on the VM.  It had a 64 bit version instead of a 32 bit.

how do I actually make the thing run after I unzip to a folder? How do I configure the service to run the app? It's probably super easy but not obvious

You can run the server in Standalone mode by running standalone.bat, to install the service it's service.bat. Here is a link to the documentation.....

https://community.jboss.org/message/724488#724488

however when I run the service.bat nothing happens

any ideas?

Edit your services.bat.... Make sure everywhere you have any reference to the local drive it matches where you inzipped the contents.i.e.... "C:\opt\jboss7\standalone\log\standalone.log" in the bat file you should see the directory in its location on the "C:\" drive.

Then at the command prompt type " service.bat install" and it will install if all of the parameters are correct. the other commands you can use are:

install
uninstall
start
stop
restart
signal

also make sure you have %JBOSS_HOME% as an enviorment variable and that it is pointed to the directory you unzipped to. such as "C:\opt\jboss7" in that directory you will see the bin folder.

Should it be system or user env var?
