Ignition Designer Launcher Error

Every time I try to launch my Ignition Designer, I get a “Launch Error Occurred” message. “Java process launch failed with error code 1: Error: could not open…”

I’ve updated and configured my Java settings, so I’m not really sure what else to do…?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Same error for me after updating to 8.1.2

I am getting this error as well. Design Launcher log shows:

I am getting the same error on version 8.1.2. No solution yet…

Update, found the solution to my issue on another thread:


I had the same issue but it was not in the same place.
I had to go to C:\Users\username.ignition. User name represents the name of the user on the computer. I deleted the Cache file and it worked.
