[gme-users] GME7 Java on 64bit Windows

Does anyone have experience with running Java GME interpreters on Windows 7
64bit and GME 7? Andrew is getting an error, below.

Hey Kevin,


I am using the 32-bit JRE (the one included in the JDK 1.6 update 20).  The
only error I get is the "Component execution failed" popup when I run the
interpreter from the GUI.  Is there some other way I could run the
interpreter that would give me more detail about my error?  


Thanks, Andrew

Hi Andrew,


Are there no other messages?


The Java Runtime Environment comes in a 32 bit version ("Windows") and a
64bit version ("Windows x64"). You should have a 32bit version installed to
run Java GME interpreters.


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/GME is normal on 64bit Windows since
GME is 32bit.


Let me know if you still have the problem.

Hi Kevin,


Himanshu Neema pointed me to you for GME questions, and I have one I hope
you can help me with. I've been trying to use GME 7 with Windows 7 64-bit,
and everything seems to be working fine except for running Java-based
plugins (components?).  When I attempt to do this, I get a "Component
execution failed" message.  Would you expect this to be a problem with the
setup of this component, or something related to Windows 7 (same plugin
works on GME 7 in XP)?  One thing I thought was odd was that in XP I set the
JavaClassPath key in the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/GME but in
Windows 7 it seems to be at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/GME.  Is
this normal? Sorry for bugging you and thanks for any help you can give me,


Andrew Davis
