Replacing Bundled JRE in Proteome Software Products

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.

  1. Download the desired version of Java from here (be sure to download the 64-bit Java for 64-bit Scaffold):

  2. Install on your system (See their documentation for details on how to do this)

  3. Find your Scaffold installation (eg, /opt/Scaffold 4 or C:\Program Files\Scaffold 4) and rename the jre folder to jre_orig. Scaffold requires the Java JRE directory (jre) to be in this installation folder to function.
  4. Find the jre folder 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 jre and restart Scaffold. You can confirm it’s working by launching Scaffold and going to Help > About Scaffold. Java version appears towards the bottom.
