How to point ETL Studio to JVM

Hello,

I have JDK8 installed on my machine with ETL Studio 5.6.2 on a 64 bit Windows7 platform. I also have installed JDK7. Each time I launch the studio I keep getting the error that Studio does not supprot JDK8. I am trying to point the studio to use JDK7 by doing the following:

- create a system variable (via right click myComputer -> properties -> advanced system settings -> environment variables) called JAVA_HOME and set it to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_71
- add the following parameter to the C:\Jaspersoft\5.5.1\studio\JETL-r118616-V5.5.1\JETL-win-x86_64.ini file:

-vm
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_71\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll

I am stuck. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Re: How to point ETL Studio to JVM

Doug,
I use Talend Open Studio (TOS), not ETL studio. However it's worth a try:
I launch TOS with the following parameter (in bold) to point to the correct JDK7 directory:
C:\Talend\TOS_ESB-20150508_1414-V5.6.2\Studio\TOS_ESB-win32-x86.exe -vm C:\JDK7ForTalend\bin
I.e. I point to the JDK bin directory and not the VM-DLL as you do.
Thus, in your case I suggest to try to use the following parameter:
-vm C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_71\bin

Hi Doug 
Take a look at this article about how to specify another JVM to launch Talend Studio.
Hope this helps!
Best regards
