Could not run the sketch (Target VM failed to initialize)

edited March 10 in Library Questions

Im new to processing and have to learn how to use it for Uni.

I've imported the processing sound library, however if i try and use i get the above error.

The only solutions I've found online relate to rolling back graphics drivers. These posts are more than 12 months old so thats not viable and probably not even the issue. Im running the program on Windows 10 and just wondering if theres a possible solution.


  • Install the minim library instead and run the provided examples as a first step to check that it works. If you run into any problems, describe the problem, provide your code and any additional relevant detail like error codes or track trace.

    The sound library doesn't seem to be maintained these days. Minim is the way to go if you want to work on the sound domain.
