processing error at startup

Hi when I open processing it gives me this error:

processing_error It happens with Processing 2 and 3. I tryed to reinstall java, cancel Processing preference, check java path. Nothing. I thing that is something concerning my system a not a processing bug. Do you have some hints about it? Thanks



  • Mac ? Win? Linux?


    Win 7?

    Update java?

    Update grapic card driver?

    Win: do you / processing have admin rights?

    you're right. Windows 7 java version 1.8.0_60-b.27 yes processing has admistrator rights.

  • Try the Windows 32bit version, I assume you are trying the 64bit

    What are you using to unzip the download? Some unarchivers dont handle long filenames very well. Might be worth googling your zipper.

  • thanks guys no processing is 32 bit and also java. To unzip I use 7zip. I don't know I'm working in Eclipse but this thing keep me awake. For me there's something in Windows...

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\processing-2.2.1

    try unzipping it somewhere without spaces in the directory name. i vaguely remember something having that issue before.

  • no spaces and () sounds good

    7zip also is good imho

  • I don't know I'm working in Eclipse

    What does this mean? Why mention Eclipse?

  • [SOLVED] the problem was the antivirus BitDefender. I will investigate further...
