Did the latest Java update (17) break PMS for anyone else?

Postby Zogundar » Mon Mar 11, 2013 9:14 pm

Because no sooner did I install that than PMS doesn't load for me anymore. I've got 6 error files in my PS3 Media server with lines like this:
Code: Select all
# JRE version: 7.0_17-b02
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (23.7-b01 mixed mode windows-x86 )
# Problematic frame:
# V  [jvm.dll+0x658cd]

each from an attempt to open the program.

I was able to get it to run if I ran the .jar file instead of the .exe (I think it's an exe), but in addition to not detecting my wireless TV on the network, when I played a video it skipped around, (Though not according to the timestamp) making it unwatchable.

*EDIT*

Using the
Code: Select all
javaw -classpath pms.jar net.pms.PMS > output.txt 2>&1


thingy in the FAQ seems to load the program for some reason (Haven't tested to see if it actually plays things properly.)

*EDIT2*

Since I'm not sure about rolling back Java I went ahead and tried to see if it would play properly loaded in that manner (At least as a temporary measure), but no, I get the same skipping problems as before (And it also seemed to just give up and stop transcoding this after less than a minute.)

Rolling back to Java 7 Update 15 eliminated my problems. I just uninstalled it from the Control Panel and without even rebooting installed Update 15, and PMS went back to loading and working as normal.

Gotta be something wrong with Update 17.

Are you sure you're running the latest version of Java? What about the OS? I'm running Windows XP. I don't think I'm the only one having problems related to it.

Mine stopped working as well after the Java Popup asking me to install the update. I am using Window8, but I think the issue is that PMS is written to work with 32Bit version of Java.... If your like me, your system is 64BIT OS, then the Java Update will install the 64 Bit Version. I went to the Java Website, and selected Other Versions, and downloaded the Windows 32 Bit Version and installed. As soon as I did that my Automatic Service I had Setup started the PS3 Media Server within a couple of minutes, and I was able to start the console immediately.

Hope this helps!

Nope, running 32-bit XP. Don't know why Java would suddenly decide to automatically install a 64-bit version.
