9.6 Upgrade - Sonar.web not starting without wrapper.conf

I’m trying to upgrade SonarQube from 9.4 to 9.6. I noticed wrapper.conf is no longer being used.
When trying the steps described in documentation to install the service on Windows, I’m currently unable to get the sonar.web correctly started.

In logs no sonar.web is created, I’m only seeing a warning in sonar.log:
All other log files (es.log, SonarServiceWrapper.wrapper.log) show INFO / DEBUG messages.

WARN app[o.s.a.p.AbstractManagedProcess] Process exited with exit value [Web Server]: 1

In Windows Application Event Logs I’m seeing following warning being logged as well:

Child process [7800 - java.exe -Xms8m -Xmx32m -Djava.awt.headless=true --add-exports=java.base/jdk.internal.ref=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/java.lang=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/java.nio=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.base/sun.nio.ch=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=java.management/sun.management=ALL-UNNAMED --add-opens=jdk.management/com.sun.management.internal=ALL-UNNAMED -cp “…....\lib\sonar-application-9.6.1.59531.jar” “org.sonar.application.App” ] finished with 0

Has anybody come across these difficulties before, is there no way to (still) use the wrapper.conf file as it never failed me before …
