When you want to change the given ram, instead of checking ''Auto Detect'' you should uncheck it and direct it to your 64 bits Java. If you don't have it already:" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Here When installed follow this path: C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\javaw.exe click on javaw.exe not on any other Java! Now you assigned the right version of Java that supports more than 1GB ram.

Your issue is that you have not specified a file name for the craftbukkit.jar file in the server parameters. 
Try entering a name (craftbukkit.jar) in the required field and it should work
