I have some customers who are running Ignition v7.2 and others who are running v7.5. I have Java 6 and Java 7 installed on my laptop. I do not understand how to correctly launch a Designer (or a Client) session that uses Java 6 when connecting to a Gateway running v7.2. By default my Designer will start in Java 7. To get around this, on Windows, I create a shortcut with this as the Target, e.g.:
“C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaws.exe” “http://192.168.2.11:8088/main/system/launch/designer/designer.jnlp”
with Start In set to:
But it does not work correctly. I get a startup message saying Java 6, but it runs like Java 7 and FUBARs my windows when I edit them. When uninstall Java 7 everything works fine again.
