Okay here’s a nerdy one for all you tech guys. Please keep in mind I don’t understand the question properly so the answers may leave me a little cold and more questions may follow.
I recently had to refit my pc with a new primary hard drive. I then tried to build all my old toolset up again.
I could not run tlkedit and it transpired that this program needs an old version of Java (jre1.5) so I installed it along side the latest java (jre1.8). Perversly jre 1.5 appears in my Program_files_(x86) folder which I thought were the 64 bit files and 1.8 appears in my program_files folder. Is that the wrong way round?
My current issue it that I can run mdbcloner just fine but I cannot run mdbconfig. I prefer config, and for a current problem I have with a retexture, I really need RJS’s superb config tool.
Running config give me the message “could not find the main class. Program will exit”. A little googling tells me that it might be a conflict betwen the 32 and 64 bit versions but it does not give me a solution in a way that I understand.
So I see my options as:
- Delete the newer java and try to run everything on the old. At the risk of newer java reliant files not working.
- Ask a kind soul to look at some of the older nwn tools and update them to run off the newer java.
- swap the java installs so the newer works out of the (x86) folder and the older sits in the 32 bit program_files folder … that one I am really not sure about.
- Sob gently to myself for a few minutes then give up on the tool set and play Caesar III instead?
Your thoughts and comments would be welcome before I embark upon this journey into darkness.
