  • JDK Location

    I'm trying to install Elcipse with the Groovy/Grails Tool Suit (groovy-grails-tool-suite-3.2.0.RELEASE-e4.2.2-win32-x86_64-installer). At step 5 of 8 it wants me to select the JDK path. I have installed JDK-7u21-windows-x64. What path is the proper path that needs to be entered? I've tried several, but none have been acceptable.

    Usually you can select the directory of the JDK installation itself, you don't need to select any subdirectory of the JDK installation. In case this fails on your machine, the installer seems to have trouble identifying the JDK as an JDK.

    As a workaround for this I would recommend to download the ZIP version of GGTS (is available from the download page as well) and use that instead. You just have to unzip that and go. In case it uses a JRE by default to run GGTS in that case, you need to modify the sts.ini file manually and add a -vm and the full path to the javaw.exe file of your JDK.
