We would like to launch UVC 6.10.x on a Windows workstation with AdoptOpenJDK 11, what is the easiest way to make univiewer_console.bat to look for Adoptopenjdk instead of other Java versions installed on the workstation?
Release : 6.10.x
Component : Dollar Universe
Subcomponent: Univiewer Console
UVC Standalone looks for a valid Java installation in:
1. the environment variable JAVA_HOME
2. the Windows registry keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment
In order to force to use a specific Java JRE/JDK version, you should edit the variable JAVA_HOME in the User environment as follows:
This PC - Properties - Advanced System Settings - Advanced - Environment Variables
User Variables, click on New
Variable Name: JAVA_HOME
Variable value: C:\Program Files\AdoptOpenJDK\jdk-22.214.171.124-hotspot (should be set to your corresponding JRE/JDE installation folder)
Save and close, then launch again the univiewer_console.exe and this time UVC should be launched using the desired Java version.
