I've recently upgraded the version of Java on my Windows 7 box to 7.0.30 and Openproj no longer opens my .pod files
I think this may be due to the new version reporting itself to Openproj as Oracle rather than Sun java
Is there any way I can work round this (except installing an earlier version of java)?
I tried installing both 6.0.310 and 7.0.30 but Openproj finds the newest version.
I downgraded Java to 6.0.310 but other programmes that I use (e.g. Webex) are now complaining that the version is too old and won't allow me to run without upgrading Java again.
This is a real pain!!
Hey there….I am a co-founder of OpenProj. My other co-founder and I are hopefully going to get back involved…..the OpenProj code has really not been update in the past 4 years sine we got acquired. There was a recent minor update causing many issues.
Thanks for the reply.
Hopefully you can get a fix soon.
I also have a similar issue when I try to run OpenProj on CentOS. It doesn't like the fact that it is not called Sun Java any more.
A script called openproj is running all the verification but when you check all the requisites, it called a funtion named
that forms the next cmd line:
$java -Xms128m -Xmx768m -jar openproj.jar
the openproj.jar run its checkout and review that the vendor is not Sun is oracle and fails.
The solution is correct openproj.jar or how to tell to the openproj.jar that java vendor is Sun and not oracle.
Java programmers help!
Having Java 6 installed, modify the OpenProj1.4.0.ini file:
Using Java 6 solved my problem and opened the .pod file
java -Djava.vendor="Sun Microsystems Inc." -jar openproj.jar
Thanks @dgolovin. That works.
Yeah, the first major update to OpenProj since we got acquired by Serena is coming out tomorrow. ProjectLibre was a major rewrite and includes compatibility with MIcrosoft Project 2010, bug fixes, printing of reports, a ribbon UI and more. You can download ProjectLibre also on Sourceforge. We also launched a community site at http://www.projectlibre.org There are images and other information on the community site. It would be good to get your feedback on ProjectLibre
To open openproject , please add this lines in /usr/bin/openproj .
Go to line 158 . See this example
158 if && ; then
159 "$JAVA_EXE" $JAVA_OPTS -Djava.vendor="Sun Microsystems Inc." -jar "$OPENPROJ_HOME/openproj.jar" $ARGS > "$LOG_FILE"
161 "$JAVA_EXE" $JAVA_OPTS -jar "$OPENPROJ_HOME/openproj.jar" $ARGS > /dev/null 2>&1
