Hello Kausik,

As a workaround, are you able to edit the jnlp file that is downloaded for 
Jalview Webstart to increase max-heap-size say to 2G? And run from the command 
line with javaws.

Someone will follow up on the Installer error (who is not on a mini iPad in a 
remote corner of the Scottish Highlands).

Subject: [Jalview-discuss] Problems installing and then running Jalview on 
Windows 10

Please help.

1.       I have 32-bit Java JRE v.1.8.0_101 on my Windows 10 x64 machine.
2.       So I downloaded the 32 bit installer without the VM.
3.       Trying to install kept giving me Windows error 2 in loading Java VM.
4.       I bypassed the error by running from a command prompt: 
install-jalview.exe LAX_VM “C:\Program Files 
5.       The installation would start and then fail with an error message about 
–i switch re GUI
6.       So, I tried: install-jalview.exe LAX_VM “C:\Program Files 
(x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_101\bin\java.exe” –i gui
7.       The installation went through this time. I was asked to specify a 
folder for installation, which I did.
8.       The installation was finished with a note that there were errors.

Now I find that none of the Java .jar executables in the created Jalview 
program folder work. None. Double-clicking on them returns no action at all.

I checked my Java by double-clicking an unrelated .jar file I had (a 
statistical applet) and it worked as usual.

I must be doing something wrong; can someone please help?

I cannot use the web-based version, because my FASTA files are large and I am 
running out of memory (I tried).

Thanks in advance,
