Addenum to the readme for x64 Win 7.

Post by Alexoin » Tue Jun 21, 2011 1:30 pm

Just installed it and was following the instructions for setting the javaw.exe file to administrator. Did as instructed, ran the program, and still had the error come up that Java was not running in admin mode.

Fortunately I had a thought, and changed the other javaw.exe to admin, and it worked fine.

What I mean by the other javaw.exe is that on 64 bit versions of win 7 (or at least on mine anyway), there exists two versions of the JRTE. One is default installed into "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe" which is the 64 bit one, and one into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe" which is the 32 bit one. It is the 32 bit one that needs changing for SWGAide.

Might be worth adding that to the Readme, that if you have a 64bit OS you may have two copies of java, and it's the 32bit one that needs admin priviledges.

Super ... I will update the readme file right away and see if I can create an update during the weekend.

Thanks again.
