Hello,

after last update of ARIS Express to version 2.4c I cannot launch ARIS Express. Following error is displayed: "Unable to find a JRE in the specified directory. Please repair the settings in launcher.cfg and try again".

Java 8 Update 111 is present on my computer. Uninstalling and installing of setup.exe was not helpful. File "launcher.cfg" ist not existing on installing path of ARIS Express.

Can help me someone?

Hi,

please uninstall and delete the installation folder completely before installing Express 2.4c,

Bye,

How do I uninstall Aris Express and start all over with a fresh install? I have this installed on Windows 10 on a Mac (using Virtualbox). I've had the same error message and follow other instructions on the forum which has not worked and I'd like to start fresh.

The uninstall on a Windows 10 OS seems to leave a number of Aris folders and files behind - something very common with Windows. How do I remove everything safely?

Hi

I get the same error message and even if I delete the installation folder and reinstall I get the error message again. I am trying to run it on a Mac Pro computer with Parallells and Windows 10. Installing the Microsoft version of Aris Express.

Hi Bilal,

you state that the message about a missing JRE is shown.

The system-wide installed JRE is not important, JRE (windows version) brings its own JRE.

It should be located in <installation folder>ARIS Express\client\jre, so there should be subfolders containing (bin and lib). Is that that case on your computer after installing?

Do you try to install on a remote directory?

Bye,

Frank

Hi Frank,

enclosed you find the screenshots of the installation folder. It contains all subfolder.

What do you mean with installing on a remote directory? I have just a local installation.

Regarding the error message something has to be wrong with the launcher file.

Bye

The same here, today installed a clean Win 10, so for sure there are no registry problems etc.

Hi Bilal,

actually, the launcher.cfg should not be needed. Your installation seems to be ok...

You can try to place a file named "launcher.cfg" in the folder "<installation folder>\client\config" with the following content:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<launcherConfig>
  <jvmParams
    jvmPath="./jre"
    jars="./lib"
    userConfigPath=""
    jvmOptions="-Xmx750m;-XX:PermSize=64m;-XX:MaxPermSize=160m;-XX:+DisableExplicitGC;-Dsun.java2d.d3d=false;-Dsun.locale.formatasdefault=true"
    AutomaticMemoryManagement="true" />
</launcherConfig>

Bye,

Frank

Hello, I'm afraid I have the same error message, clean first-time installation on Windows 10.

I have found a solution. 

Execute the file C:\Program Files\ARIS Express\client\lib\express.jnlp

After executing the file, a new application exe file will be generated. Install it in your desktop and use it to run the program.

You can email me at jmonagas@ecoem.com.ve for further assistance

Matthew Russell posted on 2017-02-08

Hello Jose, I don't seem to have a file called 'express.jnlp in the location you've named. Where is this file? And by exexcute, do you mean 'click to open'?

Thank You Jose Monages!

 

It works fine

Matthew Russell posted on 2017-02-08

I did not try Frank's solution as it doesn't seem to work for anyone and I also tried to launch the Express file which also did not work. I'm still unable to use Aris Express since upgrading.
