JDK – Java SE 7

August 5, 2011 | 1:50 pm

Is that the right one to install? Or if not, which?

Thank you for the advice.

Well I just installed JRE7 and got an Error window when creating a mxj object saying:

"This application failed to start because MSVCR100.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem"

Plus some error info on the max window (see attachment)

This is on Windows XP. I uninstalled JRE7 and it reverted back to the latest JRE6 I had previously installed and all was well. So I would stick to JRE6 or JDK6 for now if I was you…. I have no choice in the matter

Thanks. People also talk about bugs in loops…

Error loading: C:Program FilesJavajre7binclientjvm.dll
(mxj) mxj_platform_init failed. Could not initialize the Java Runtime Environment.
Please check your Java installation.
Unable to create JVM

Me too. Same problem with JRE7. I will try to switch to JRE6.

This problem has been fixed for Max 5.1.9 , which is due to released today or tomorrow

For people that need to use earlier versions of Max with the JRE7, I believe that you can solve this by installing MS visual studio 2010 C runtime. Java only installs this to a local folder which is found from launching Java applications in their own process, not from within other applications.

Or if you want to get more hacky you can copy the files manually as many threads on other forums suggest:

This is in no way a Max specific issue, but as Andrew mentioned, we have solved this for 5.1.9

Amazing news re 5.1.9 – just waiting for this so I can update my main machine to Lion. Guess I know what I’ll be doing this weekend :D

For Max 5, you have to install Java runtime 6 x86

This is probably your fix….

Max 5 will NOT work with anything but Java 6…I struggled with this a week or so ago…does Max 6 work with Java 7?

Java 7 is (on OS X at least) 64-bit only. Max is 32-bit.
