Prevent PS3 Media Server from using Java 32-bit?

Postby Double Trouble » Wed Feb 22, 2012 3:52 pm

Hello!
My problem is this. I'm using Windows 7 and PS3 Media Server works flawlessly when I only have Java 64-bit installed. The thing is that I must have Java 32-bit installed for other applications like Firefox since Firefox only support Java 32-bit. But when I have both installed it seems as PS3 Media Server chooses to use Java 32-bit over Java 64-bit and it makes the GUI go bananas!

Any tips for how I can make sure that it uses 64-bit all the time?

By the way, I'm using Java version 6 update 30

Thank you in advance!

I would like to add to this;

I have a set and specific Environmental Variable set for my JDK 7 however as some applications I use require the 32bit version of Java, I have installed JRE7 and JRE6 32bit. The advantage is that I can startup the GUI client with 64bit mode and have my stream and transcoder running flawlessly. However my issue is that the service (to have the server on at boot, always, and no GUI to deal with) will run in 32bit. What's more, if I uninstall the 32bit version of Java, the service will perpetually fail to start at boot or manually. I have removed the service, and all entries to it, and reinstalled for the sake of thoroughness, to no avail.

This has already been answered...
You need to configure the environment variables. Links from the FAQ:

You obviously didn't read my post.

The 2nd sentence of my post mentioned that I have set my specific environmental variables already. Every other java program I use, will default to 64 bit now including the GUI version of PMS. But when running as a server either manually started or automatically when the computer first boots, it defaults to the 32 bit version.

You're right, I did miss that. My apologies.
What user is configured under the Log On settings for the service, and was the path variable set for the user or for the system? In addition, are both java install paths listed in the path variable, and if so, which one is first?

It's currently set as Local System account. The environmental variables are set for my account. Good catch, I didn't look at that close enough. Seems I may have been in the wrong and not followed the instructions correctly when setting my path. My apologies.
