I am having an issue launching a client on the PC where Ignition is installed. I can launch the same client successfully from the Gateway homepage from another PC on the network. I have tried launching directly from the Gateway homepage and also from the clientlauncher.exe application with no success.
The PC with the Ignition Gateway installed is running Windows 7 64-bit version. The Ignition version is 7.8.1 32-bit version. The Java version is 1.8.0_74 32-bit. It seems that Ignition is running fine.
When I was trying to launch the clientlauncher.exe application I was immediately getting a dialog saying Java Runtime 1.6 was required. This seemed odd since I had Java 1.8 installed. I have just installed Java 1.6 32-bit version on this PC and the clientlauncher.exe application will start and I can select a project to start. It then does nothing apparent, but there is a hs_err_pid*.log file created in the directory where the clientlaucher.exe file was located. I have attached an example of the hs_err_pid*.log file. I haven’t been able to tell much from it. Perhaps someone else has encountered something similar. I would really appreciate any help with this issue as running a Client on the PC where the Ignition Gateway is installed is somewhat critical for our application.
