Link-OS SDK Install

I wanted to install the Link-OS Multiplatform SDK to see if it provided a good solution for my project.

 

But I couldn't install it. I got this message;

 

LaunchAnywhere Error

 

Could not find a valid java virtual machine to load.

 

You may need to reinstall a supported java virtual machine.

 

Hmm, two thoughts cam immediately to mind;

1) Where does it tell me which JVMs are supported. Apologies if I missed it but I can't find it in the system requirements.

2) My development machine is rammed full of stuff as it is, do I really want to have to load a JVM (with all the attendant security issues) just so I can use a printer SDK, I think not.

 

For now, I'm looking at option 2 which is to use ZPL. Let's see how that works out!

Hi,Why not simply put all the

Hi,

Why not simply put all the link-os-sdk dlls and sample code into a zip file.

Developers can then simply unzip it without needing Java runtime.

Note the Java website says free upgrades for Java are stopping for commercial customers from April 2019 making it even less secure.
