Can't minify after Java update

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Oct 17, 2014 2:35 pm

I've tried uninstalling, installing 32-bit, 64-bit version, all combinations and nothing... don't know what to do do anymore, I can run the java trough command line without problems so the path is correct, any more suggestions?

I'm having the same problem. Tried it on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions and it's still not working. Can anyone shed some light on this?

I uninstalled the 64-bit version of Construct and installed the 32-bit version and now the minifier works. Yay!

I also updated to Java 8 update 25 with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, and 'minify script' has stopped working with the error message: "Unable to run the script modifier. Please ensure you have Java installed..."

Please help me Obiwan kenobi!!!

Try install and use java version 6. I think there is a tutorial regarding publishing your apk with old version of java. The newer version 7 might got issues and I don't know about version 8. The minify script or program might be using old version of Java to avoid issues.

If you have java 6, check your Path and JAVA home directory in the windows system properties settings.

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.



@newt I tried this and doesn't work, you must be using the 32-bit version of C2 and not the 64-bit version like I am using.

@tumira i'm well aware of downgrading, but that doesn't solve the problem in the long term or explain why it happens.

I wonder which path does Construct 2 look to find java?


P.S. For now I went back to Java 7 update 55 (64-bit) and minify script works fine, but this issue is still not resolved as should work with latest Java as we need to be up to date.

I don't think that downgrading is the way to go too... hope this be fixed on next updates.
