Unable to load JRE

Post by kuztardd »

I have a philps TV (65OLED707). I believe that UMS should allow my mac mini m1 (Ventura) to play movies to the TV as a Media Server Software (as recommended by Philips)
I have downloaded and unzipped the latest version of UMS 13.1.0.
When opening up the app an error message says "Unable to load Java Runtime Envoronment"
Java is updated to (1.8.0.361)
I've uninstalled UMS and tried again.

Are there any suggestions to help here?
Thanks in advance

Java 1.8.0.361 is Java 8.
I think, UMS 13.1 requires Java 17.

hmm, odd, as that's a big difference in versions. What am I doing wrong?

I got the lastest mac version here: - Version 8 Update 361

For java version 17 for a Mac, I think you have to install the jdk version from the oracle website.

Ahh great thanks. Got it
Saldy, installing it didnt help with the installation of UMS. So I'm a bit stuck nevertheless.

UMS should install the right version of the JRE. It could be that an old version was already installed by another program on your system.

See if there is a way to uninstall any java on your computer then reinstall UMS
