Re: Multiple JDE's / JDK's + Simulators HELL !!

[ Edited ]

You shouldn't need multiple jdk versions or doctored batch files. I have JDE versions 4.0.0 through 4.7.0 and only use jdk1.6.0. Even though I use eclipse and not the JDE's directly, I do not have any problems with the simulators or MDS. If there is a problem with the -4.2.1 signature tools, try copying one from 4.3.0+ (4.3.0 started using the passwd through command line I believe).


The environment variables I have are:

JAVA_HOME: C:\tools\Java\jdk1.6.0_06

Added to beginning of PATH: %JAVA_HOME%\bin;%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin;

Re: Multiple JDE's / JDK's + Simulators HELL !!

I agree with mreed.


I have one JDK 1.6 installed and there are JDE from 4.0 to 4.7 on my computer.


All of them work just fine.


Just specify PATH environment variable to let your java/bin folder accessible from outside.


And that's it. Nothing more.

Re: Multiple JDE's / JDK's + Simulators HELL !!

The only "gotcha" is that if you're running a 64-bit OS, you'll need the 32-bit JDK because the JDE has 32-bit native libraries.
