    When I try to start RSS Owl with my default 64 bit Java (1.6_u24), an error
    window displays with jvm error -1.

    By adding a command line option to have RSS Owl load with the 32 bit java, the
    program now starts correctly.

    The option is identical to what is required to use 32 bit Eclipse:

     -vm C:\s\java32\bin\javaw.exe (where my 32 bit java is stored at c:\s\java32)

    has this never ever been addressed? Maybe only a few people experience it (myself included). The faq page implies that 64bit jvm is no problem.

      java 64 bit prevents RSS Owl startup

      Welcome to the Club !

      I posted, some weeks ago (24/10), a report but received no response at all.
      See http://sourceforge.net/p/rssowl/discussion/296910/thread/a534d2e6/#b9eb/f513/405f

      On this post, I explained that I did what was suggested but it changed
      nothing at all. My screen capture shows what I am displayed at erach
      pseudo-startup.

      I think I am to swap to competing software if nobody can fix this up.

      Cordialement,

    This problem can be successfully solved by simply ensuring Java 32-bit is installed. No additional modifications need to be made to your current installation of Java 64-bit. If you consider Java 32-bit to be a "rot" in your system (audaci's words), then perhaps Rssowl is not the correct RSS reader for you.

    Additionally, if Mozilla still adamantly refuses to release a stable (read: not nightly) 64-bit Firefox client even after YEARS of development and "significant" community backlash, then a Java 32-bit installation will still be necessary for Java-based web applets to be functional. Unless you are a paranoid outlier and have been monitoring the recent security gaffes Oracle has been experiencing in recent memory -- but in that case you would not have any version of Java installed and hence not here.
