[MacOS][7.10.5] Incorrect JVM Error
Context: MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2019) MacOSX 10.15.5
Installing Bonita 7.10.5 Community Edition I received an error message:
“Problem running post-install step. Installation may not complete correctly
Error running tar -xzf "/Applications/BonitaStudioCommunity-7.10.5.app/Contents/Eclipse/**unknown variable jre.osx.archive.name**" -C "/Applications/BonitaStudioCommunity-7.10.5.app/Contents/Eclipse/jre": tar: Error opening archive: Failed to open '/Applications/BonitaStudioCommunity-7.10.5.app/Contents/Eclipse/**unknown variable jre.osx.archive.name**'”
The installation completed, but when attempting to run the app, the following error message results:
“Version 1.7.0_25 of the JVM is not suitable for this product.
Version: 1.8 or greater is required.”
I had a similar problem about 2.5 years ago (reference: https://community.bonitasoft.com/questions-and-answers/incompatible-jvm-error-brand-new-imac#node-28446) but the workaround suggested there does not apply to the new version.
Romain - thanks for the response. I should perhaps have been clearer - I have the correct version of Java (in fact, just updated a day or two ago). If you look at the previous occurrence of a similar problem (linked in the original question) the .ini file needed to be modified as a work around … the current setup looks different, so that fix isn't available. I'm actually running v7.10.0 just fine with the Java I have installed, but the install of 7.10.5 (and subsequent run) doesn't look for it/find it.
