GWS Installation Problems


I cannot install GWS on a new PC. I have removed all traces of Java and reinstalled Version 8 Update 251 (build 1.8.0_251-b08). I have downloaded the latest GWS 2.0.0, however, when I try to install it I get an error JRE 1.8 (64bit version) or above is required.

Please can you help me overcome this frustrating problem.

Open command prompt and type in
java -version
If nothing comes up then you need to set the Java version in the path. It is a pain because each update of Java requires the user to modify the path.

If something does come up you probably installed the (x86) version of Java you need to install the (64) version check the add remove programs and remove the x86 version

Again you probably will have to set the path if you don’t know how to do that I can help.

Thank you, that was easy. The 64 bit version of Java needed manual installation and all is now working.
