FlashPAP doesn't work after Java update

FlashPAP doesn't work after Java update
I've been using FlashPap successfully for for several months. Today I got a notification that an update to Java was available. I bit and it updated to version 8.0.1310.11. Now when I open FlashPAP and click "Scan FlashAir SD Card" the rotating dotted circle appears for a minute or so but no dates are detected. I did the usual fix-alls of rebooting my computer and removing and reinserting the FlashAir card in my machine. Still no dates detected. Has anyone else had this problem and have a solution?

Thanks

RE: FlashPAP doesn't work after Java update
You can verify that your system is seeing the newer version.  In a command prompt, type: java -version
Their numbering system can fool you.    My version returns: java version  "1.8.0_131"  which seems to equate to: 8.01310.11.

The only other thing I can current think of is to right-click on the FlashPAP.jar file and select the "Open With" option.  See if it is pointing to the correct java version/path.

Keep us updated. If you are having a problem, so will somebody else.

I also get  see " java version  "1.8.0_131" and when I  select "open with" for the .jar file I get a dialog box that reads:
______________________________________________________
How do you want to open this file?

Keep using this app

Java™ platform SE Binary

Other options



look for an app in the store (with the windows store icon)

A check box  for : always use this app to open .jar files

OK

Don't know what to do from here. Hope you can explain. I'm using Windows 10.

Thanks Thanks

I'm using Win7.  I looked and I have both a 32 and 64 bit versions of java.  

In a command prompt window, navigate to your FlashPAP directory then try . . .
(It will probably be easier to copy the line then right-click in the DOS window and select "Paste")

64 bit version:
C:\Progra~1\Java\jre1.8.0_131\bin\java -jar FlashPAP.jar

32 bit version:
C:\Progra~2\Java\jre1.8.0_131\bin\java -jar FlashPAP.jar

Both should work.

RE: FlashPAP doesn't work after Java update
This may not be best but I opened the zipped Flashpap file on my desk top and that's where the program has resided since March 9th. It's worked fine until today.  So the path to the flashpap directory is C:\Users\myname\Desktop\FlashPAP. When I put that in the command prompt I get a message that the system cannot find the pathway. This may be simple to someone who is more computer literate but I'm stumped.

Bad Boy! - Shame on you. . .  Big Grin

When you open the command prompt, try typing: cd desktop\flashpap  <ENTER>
Your prompt should now say: C:\Users\myname\Desktop\FlashPAP
Now, try running the commands from my earlier post.

Let me know what happens.

RE: FlashPAP doesn't work after Java update
No joy Sad  Typed cd desktop\flashpap  and hit enter. Then had C:\users\myname\desktop\fkashpap>

was looking good but after typing C:\Progra~1\Java\jre1.8.0_131\bin\java -jar FlashPAP.jar I got "the system cannot find the path specified".  I'm thinking of just hitting the OK on the dialog box I mentioned earlier. It just may be asking confirmation that I want to use java. Dont-know

In case your wondering I did go into control panel and confirm my system is 64bit.

RE: FlashPAP doesn't work after Java update
Try the Progra~2 in case your are using the 32 bit java only.

Progra~1 = Program Files
Progra~2 = Program Files(x86)

RE: FlashPAP doesn't work after Java update
Checked and I do have 32 bit Java

We may be getting closer.  I got " program started"

EnabledControls = false


FlashPap opened. I clicked to scan the card. The dotted circle spun but no dates were found.

I did not type Progra~2 = Program Files(x86). I typed what you posted earlier

RE: FlashPAP doesn't work after Java update
I'm glad you didn't type the last.  I was attempting to show you what each "progra" number referenced.    Did the FlashPAP display show your username, machine type, IP address, and local directory to save data?

You might try copying the current FlashPAP directory to a location off of the C: drive and try executing from there. . . just a thought.
