Exclamation Installation Problem

I'm trying to install on Windows 10, I've got JRE and JDK 1.8.0, JRE 64 and 32 bit, and JDK 64 bit, and even if I use the standalone distribution of this software, I get a error.log file created by the installer that says:

java.lang.NullPointerException

and then a bunch of functions with (Unknown Source) at the end.

What's up with that? That's for all three Windows releases. There's no way out. I even tried to install the x86 JRE to see if it was a x86/amd-64 issue, but apparently not...

Help?

Re: Installation Problem

Can you attach the installer's error.log file?

Re: Installation Problem

Are you running a custom look and feel or theme of some sort? Looks like the crash in inside the JRE, I've seen something like that a few years back when people were running something other than the standard LaF, though that was on XP.

Re: Installation Problem

That's strange, how could a different look and feel affect the JRE, or your software? How could something crash inside the JRE when the JRE is bundled with it?

I always hated Java, and now I think it actually hates me...

Re: Installation Problem

It doesn't directly affect REW, but the JRE tries to use the native look and feel of the platform to render its windows, dialogs etc, if it encounters a theme that doesn't provide all the info a native theme provides it has problems. The installer is the one encountering the crash, it also uses Java.

Re: Installation Problem

Oh, I see...

I have no issues with other Java software, though... I'm not sure if I have other Java software, though, but it's really the only thing that gives me trouble...

I think Inkscape is in Java, Blender might be, too... they both work fine...

Re: Installation Problem

Which REW version are you trying to install? Worth trying the latest beta, it may have a more recent installer than V5.16 (if that was what you were installing).
