It was stated that as of 2.0.6 Java 64 would be supported. It surely doesn't work for me! I tried the recommended ""C:\Program Files (x86)\RSSOwl\RSSOwl.exe" -vmargs -D32" which fails. Is there another hidden switch I need try pulling?
And Java 32 is not an option (I will not infest any system with such a rot... sorry for the rude words, though).
It is working fine here. Though I used PortableApps Java x64 Portable placed in Application folder/jre
what exactly do you suggest?
Audaci, my mistake I mixed vm's folders.
It report the error exit code=1 with the x64 vm; Java x64 is not working here either.
There is no x64 build of RSSOwl for Windows so RSSOwl can not be run with a 64Bit Java VM.
Is there anything that is preventing a windows x64 build? Is the windows java x64 toolset missing some components? If so, maybe we can all start submitting requests to oracle instead of bothering Benjamin.
It's not a java component. It's a component called equinox.security - part of Eclipse. There was no 64-bit version of it back in the day. Now there is, but starting from Eclipse 3.7, while RSSOwl is based on 3.4.
So, to release a 64 bit build, RSSOwl Eclipse base should be upgraded to at least 3.7. As far as I remember genodeftest was working on porting RSSOwl to Eclipse 4.2.
Meanwhile, you actually can use x64 build if you build it yourself(or I can post it somewhere for you).
I've been using custom RSSOwl x64 build based on 3.7 for about a year, with RSSOwl 2.2 it got quote stable now, before internal browser used to crash sometimes. Some minor things do not work, but it's definetely can be considered usable.
Hmm I'd go for building it myself, then. I hope there's a proper instruction somewhere.
There's instruction on the wiki.
As for specifically building in 3.7, you have to remove dependency to 3.4 RCP in "build" and "ui" projects. Then replace 32 bit dependencies with their 64-bit cousins in the "dependencies" project.
One thing that does not work in 3.7x64 right now - toolbar is always on startup and won't easily go away, so I usually just comment it out - in class ApplicationWorkbenchWindowAdvisor change line 151 to:
@sg2002: I tried to port RSSOwl to Eclipse 4.2 but failed. That's too much work for me.
Can you post your x64 build? As long as it usable I can live with some minor quirks.
Hello Marc. Sorry, didn't notice this post until now. Here it is:
Windows 7 complains that the zip file (23,072 kB, from the link above) is invalid. I downloaded it 3 times and got the same result. Could you please re-upload? Thanks.
Dunno, why would it complain, downloaded it myself, archive is fine.
Anyway, here's another upload:
Hmmm... Tried it again, from 2 different Windows 7 PC's, from IE 10 and Chrome 30, with the same result. Extract All says "Windows cannot complete the extraction. The compressed folder ....\'rssowl64.zip' is invalid." Using Cygwin, I see that the file size is 23,624,999 bytes. Using winmd5, the MD5 hash value for the zip file as downloaded is 1e43b8a769d78002c968c7a92cc2ae50. If these match yours, then I got the file correctly, and I don't have a download problem -- instead maybe there is an incompatibility with zip tools. What tool did you use to make the zip?
If it is a download issue, do you have another site (perhaps dropbox?) where you could post this, or can I ftp it from somewhere? Thanks again.
Tried opening with windows explorer - yeah, there seems to be some kind of problem with it. I usually use Total Commander and everything worked fine with it.
So I repacked the archive manually, here's a dropbox link:
