Historically, PS ships a bundled version of Java to run Scaffold and other products. Sometimes this version can be replaced as a workaround for another issue. This procedure explains how to do this.
Download the desired version of Java from here (be sure to download the 64-bit Java for 64-bit Scaffold):
Install on your system (See their documentation for details on how to do this)
- Find your Scaffold installation (eg,
C:\Program Files\Scaffold 4) and rename the
jre_orig. Scaffold requires the Java JRE directory (
jre) to be in this installation folder to function.
jrefolder for the new version of Java you just installed (usually inside the JDK folder, eg, like this on Linux:
/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64/jreX.X_XX) and copy it to the Scaffold installation directory, rename it to
jreand restart Scaffold. You can confirm it’s working by launching Scaffold and going to Help > About Scaffold. Java version appears towards the bottom.
