Hi Sha, I just saw this appear in our moderator list, since your email included images which were too big to post to jalview-discuss.
Just to summarise:
You’re on windows 10. You had an issue with java, and after uninstalling/re-installing, Jalview didn’t work. Uninstall/re-install lead to a stacktrace in the flexera installer. It would be good to see that stack trace, in full (you should be able to copy/paste it out of the exception dialog box into notepad/etc).
Firstly - which version of Java did you (re) install ?
The remaining errors ('Error opening registry key ‘Software\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment’, ‘Error: could not find java.dll’, and ‘Error: could not find Java SE Runtime Environment’) all look like they are due to Jalview’s installer thinking there is a version of Java on the machine already, and trying to use that. You mentioned that you have java enabled in your browser - does that mean you can go to java.com and it reports that you do have java available ? If so then you didn’t really ininstall Java properly. Either way it looks like something is up with your machine’s registry re Java installation keys.
I’ve forward this to Ben Soares - our specialist on installing/running Jalview on windows. Hopefully he’ll be able to help you out - perhaps by working out how to force the InstallAnywhere Jalview installer to use its build in version of Java…
Over to you, Ben…
First I used to have JalView and it worked fine, but then I had to uninstall and reinstall my Java. Then JalView quit working and I uninstalled it and tried to re- install it. This is the error I was getting. ( I have Windows 10 on a Lenova computer and use chrome or firefox)
Then I decided to uninstall my Java and just reinstall Jalview that includes Java in the one step process, but the following are the errors I got with that. I have Java enabled in my browser.
