Error in GoWrite Launcher, No usable JVM found

Postby spook » Mon Feb 13, 2012 11:15 am

Dear,

Some problems while launching the application:
"Error in GoWrite Launcher, No usable JVM found" appears in a messagebox at startup.

I have a JRE as well as a JDK installed on my system:
    C:\Java\jdk1.6.0_24
    C:\Java\jre6

I tried
    Searching the register (regedit) but didn't find a place to declare the javapath for GoWrite
    Also searched in the GoWrite folder for configuration files, but didn't find any
    Finally I tried adding the java jdk bin folder to the PATH system environment constant, but made no difference

Anything else I can try? or am I simply using an unsupported Java version?

I noticed the same problem was mentioned in a previous thread, however I do not get the error message of the missing DLL file.


Using Windows7, 64bit system, Downloaded GoWrite2 just last friday.

Hi,

In 64 bit Windows GOWrite requires 64 bit Java. So please install 64-bit Java JRE.

Thanks,

I first looked up if 64bit and 32bit java can be installed on the same computer. Seems to be no problem.
Downloaded and installed it, works fine. :-)

Thanks !

I have come to really hate Java. Always have problems with it and never easy to resolve, just a time wasting kludge IMHO. I have a 64 bit Windows 10 machine and have boith 32bit and 64 bit latest JAVA REs installed and it confirms they are there and running okay as you can see below from this screen shot I captured. Hmm cannot paste it in here ??? Never mind but both 32 and 64 bit JRE are running

I have installed - uninstalled - reinstalled GoWrite2 latest version 3.x.x and the previous version 2.x.x but always I get the same error meeaage when I try to run it. " Error in GoWrite launcher. No usable JVM found"

I see lots of people complaining about this bloodyu frustrating error, so can you not use something other than bloodyh Java for future editions. Cannot do anymore as have even reinstalled both 32 and 64 bit latest JREs as well and still get this same error. It is so incredibly annoying I am sure you will appreicate. Just wasted nearly 2 hours as I simply wanted to just run up GoWrite2 to re-examine a Go Game SGF file I have saved. So a big GRRRRRR

Do I give up or have you an easy non time consumming answer ??

Cheers
RayW

Java 8 is the LTS (long-term support) version of java. It should work with all recent gowrite versions.

Java 9 and Java 10 changed the way they are identified. Only 3.0.17 version work with Java 9 or Java 10.
If there are issues with 3.0.17 and java 9 or 10, please try to report specific versions not working with other. Without specific versions I cannot help in solving the issues.

regards
Lauri

Thank you so much Ipaatero. I uninstalled GoWrite2 V2.x.x and downloaded and installed V3.0.17 as you suggested/ Bingo it now works straight away. I had used 3.0.14 before which as youj said would not have worked with Jave 10 64 bit. My Java 8 is of course only 32 bit version.

Anyway many thanks indeed. Great speedy help and now I can enjoy using this very useful program.

Cheers
RayW
