Agent is not getting instaniated

Our application is Play 2.5.8 which use activator to run/compile.  I installed the controller in my localhost and can view the controller dashboard.  I downloaded the agent AppServerAgent-4.3.0.2, extracted and added the  javaagent javaoptoin in my application build.sbt 

javaOptions in run += "-javaagent:/Appdynamics/AppServerAgent-4.3.0.2/javaagent.jar"

 

When i start the application, no logs are generated in the agent and also agent is not displaying in dashboard

 

Then tried to add the running JVM

 

java -Xbootclasspath/a:"C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.8.0_112/lib/tools.jar" -jar /Appdynamics/AppServerAgent-4.3.0.2/javaagent.jar 28900

 

I'm getting below error
