[resolved] Error when creating new Excel file in Metadata

Hi,
I want to create a new Excel file in the metadata.
When arriving on step 3 of 4, tab "Output" shows the error messages : 
"Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.
Preview error. Some settings must be changed.
Note: Preview errors are generally due to a wrong encoding setting.
org.talend.designer.runprocess.shadow.ShadowFilePreview.preview(ShadowFilePreview.java:90)
org.talend.repository.ui.utils.ShadowProcessHelper.getCsvArray(ShadowProcessHelper.java:383)
org.talend.repository.ui.wizards.metadata.connection.files.excel.ExcelFileStep2Form$PreviewProcessor.nonUIProcessInThread(ExcelFileStep2Form.java:1041)
org.talend.commons.ui.swt.thread.SWTUIThreadProcessor$1.run(SWTUIThreadProcessor.java:74)"
The same happens when I try to create a delimited file.
Java on my Win7 machine is C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_71
Thanks for your help.

Hi Sabrina,

Now it works ok.
Thank you for your help.

Re: [resolved] Error when creating new Excel file in Metadata

Hi,
Did you install Talend in "Program Files" or any directory with a space or illegal character? If so, try moving it to one that does not contain a space. Such as: D:\talend\<version>\(Don't give a long name).
Feel free to let me know is it OK with you.
Best regards
Sabrina

Hi Sabrina,
Yes, Talend was installed on c:\Program Files.
I moved (cut/paste) Talend to c:\Talend and tried again.
But it does not work :
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.
Preview error. Some settings must be changed.
Note: Preview errors are generally due to a wrong encoding setting.
org.talend.designer.runprocess.shadow.ShadowFilePreview.preview(ShadowFilePreview.java:90)
org.talend.repository.ui.utils.ShadowProcessHelper.getCsvArray(ShadowProcessHelper.java:383)
org.talend.repository.ui.wizards.metadata.connection.files.excel.ExcelFileStep2Form$PreviewProcessor.nonUIProcessInThread(ExcelFileStep2Form.java:1041)
org.talend.commons.ui.swt.thread.SWTUIThreadProcessor$1.run(SWTUIThreadProcessor.java:74)
It sounds there is an issue with the Java Virtual Machine, but I don't know what the messages exactly mean.

Hi,
What's the build version you are using? Did you execute a simple job successfully in it? Is it oracle JDK or Open JDK? Could you please show us your step 3 of 4 screenshots?
Best regards

Hi Sabrina,
Build version :
Version: 5.5.1
Build id: r118616-20140617-1110
No, I did not execute a simple job successfully yet.
JDK comes from Oracle website.
See screen shot below.

Hi,

Please reinstall Talend Studio in c:\Talend instead of moving Talend related folder. Make sure that there is no extra space or illegal character.
Feel free to let us know if it is OK with you.
