Java update won't let VASSAL launch

Postby edmenzel » July 21st, 2016, 4:39 pm

This morning I updated to the latest Java version. Now when I attempt to launch VASSAL I get an error message that says - The registry refers to a nonexistent Java Runtime Environment installation or the runtime is corrupted. The system cannot find the file specified.

Yesterday VASSAL launched correctly. The Java update is the only difference.

I am running Windows 10. Any ideas for help?

Same problem here.

No other update available for Java Runtime Environment.
A reinstall of Vassal does not resolve the problem.

We need more information in order to help you. What version of Java is it that you've installed?

New Java installation causing problem: Version 8 Update 101 (build 1.8.0_101-b13).

I've been running Windows 10 for many months and the previous version of Java with no problems including yesterday. This morning I installed the new Java update per Oracle's prompt. When I attempted to launch VASSAL is when I got the error message.

Problem solved!

Windows 10. Java Runtime Environment 8 Update 101.1

I noticed that my JRE was not 64 bits and that the Update 102 was available (manual download only).

- Uninstall JRE 8 U101 (32 bits)
- Install JRE 8 U102 (64 bits)
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/ ... 33155.html

I'm unable though to check in Firefox the Java plug-in.

OK, I solved the problem by uninstalling an old Java lying around, and also removing its key in the Registry.
