XMind VS Java

After installing an update to Java this morning XMind wouldn’t start and gave me the following message:

“A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) must be available in order to run XMind. No Java virtual machine was found after searching the following locations…”

First thing is to check your version of Java by hitting WINDOWS KEY + W (Windows 8) or WINDOWS KEY (Windows 7) and typing “Java”:

Turns out that Java updated to version 7 which changed the folder path from “jre6” to “jre7” which means that XMind can no longer find the Java RTE.

Luckily the path to Java is stored in the xmind.ini file that lives in the XMind installation folder and updating the file as follows fixes the problem.

Happy mind mapping!
