Java stopped working


I get a message: "Java(TM) Platform SE binary has stopped working"
I restarted my PC and install the latest Java update (Java 8 update 77).
What else can I do?

    Assuming you are running on Windows, can you try editing the BioGearsGUI.bat file and changing the line:
    set JAVA_OPTS=-Xmx1024m
    set JAVA_OPTS=-Xmx512m
    set JAVA_OPTS=-Xmx256m
    If you are on linux you edit the file
  • yes, running Windows.
    It doesn't let me save the edited file, says "Access is denied". Any idea?

    It just unzipped to your directory, you can set permissions on the files, but there is no reason that it should be read only on your machine...
    Where did you unzip it to? Maybe you don't have permissions to that directory?
  • Thanks! it works great now.
