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- (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.
