Issue with Java and opening Stencyl [Resolved]


  • Posts: 12
Stencyl crashed and I cannot reopen it.  Whenever I try to reopen it, it fails and gives me the error report below.
The program was working perfectly, then I tried to go into the behaviors for a scene, it froze up and then crashed and now it will not open.
I'm using Stencyl on a Mac running OS 10.10.4
This is the latest version of Stencyl and I have the latest version of Java. I have never had this issue before.

Any suggestions? Thank you.

That looks like a very low level crash of Java. How did you install it (and which version)?

I would suggest trying to uninstall and reinstall Java using these instructions:

Okay, I followed those instructions. I uninstalled java (tested it by trying to open Stencyl, which said that I needed Java to open it... so it was gone). I then reinstalled Java with those instructions. The version of java was 8 update 101.

I then tried to reopen Stencyl and got the exact same error as before. It still will not open...

[Edit] Okay, I just quit everything on my computer and restarted it. Now Stencyl seems to be functioning correctly. I don't know why this happened, but resetting my system seems to have cleared up the issue for now. I probably should have done that first... Thanks for the help though!
