Can't minify after Java update

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Oct 15, 2014 12:55 pm

I have recently updated Java to Java 8 update 25 (8.0.250), installed both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions as I run the 64-bit version of Construct 2, and lastly I uninstalled the older version of Java.

Now when I try to minify on export I'm getting the "Unable to run the script minifier. Please ensure you have Java installed." error in C2 (r184).
Anyone else had trouble minifying after updating Java?

I figured it was a problem with my machine, since I didn't see any other reports on this.
If anyone has any suggestions I'd be grateful.

I think there is an issue with the 64 bit version not being pointed to the right place.

I don't know what could have happened, C2 just runs the minifier the same way you run java apps from the command line: java -jar something.jar. If you can run java apps that way still then C2 should be able to as well.

Note the part about suggesting you use 32 bit.

No proof positive, but I uninstalled the 64 bit, and reinstalled the 32, and its now working.
