No suitable Java runtime environment found on this system
Some customers that use the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser have reported that they are no longer able to run BradLIVE. When attempting to run BradLIVE, the following message is received:
Reinstalling Java does not fix the problem.
We believe this may be caused by operating system level and/or Internet Explorer level updates that break BradLIVE launch functionality.
The workaround is to use one of the following web browsers instead of Internet Explorer:
Missing required Permissions manifest attribute in main JAR
No signon screen and red Error. Click for details in upper left hand corner and it reads "Missing required Permissions manifest attribute in main JAR".
This could mean that you recently updated your version of Java and need to clear your Java cache. To clear Java cache:
- Go to Control Panel
- Find your Java control panel within your list of programs
- Open the Java control panel
- On the General tab, click "Settings"
- Click "Delete Files"
- Check "Trace and Log Files" and "Cached Applications and Applets", then OK.
Do you want to run this application?
Because of Java's security restrictions, users may be prompted with a dialog asking if they wish to run the application:
Users need to:
- Click the checkbox next to "I accept the risk...". This must be done if you wish to run BradLIVE>
- Users may expand the options drop down at the bottom of the dialog and select "Do not show this again for apps from the publisher and location above" if they do not wish to see this dialog again.
- Click the Run button
J Walk Windows Client Error Message
BradLIVE recently transitioned from a native Windows application to a Java application. Users of the old Windows' application may see the following error:
The Windows client is no longer supported.
BradLIVE is supported in Java 7 build 13 or laterJava 7, build 13, fixed a bug in the Java 7 runtime which now allows users to run BradLive.
How to install Java
- Go to http://java.com/
- Click the "Free Java Download" button
- Once the download is complete, run the installer
- Note: During installation, it is recommended that you uncheck the "Install Ask toolbar" option.
- Launch the BradLIVE Java Client
Red X appears
If there is a red X over where BradLIVE should appear and you are using IE8, then there are some configuration settings in Internet Explorer that prevent BradLIVE from downloading into your browser. You should install and try using either Firefox or Google Chrome.
Sometimes you will download the client, but it will be unable to connect back to the server. Please ask your IT department if a firewall is blocking your access to port 8079 on answernet.bradleycorp.com.
Prompted for answernet login twice
Once the applet is downloaded, it asks for authentication to open a connection back to us. We are working on a fix for this, but for now, checking save password will save it temporarily.
If you see a red X above, then most likely Java is installed but it is configured to block part of the applet download. This seems to happen most frequently on IE8, but not on all IE8 systems.
Chrome doesn't have Java Plugin Installed
Starting with Chrome 42, Java is disabled by default for Chrome. Follow the instructions on Enabling NPAPI in Chrome Version 42 and later to re-enable the plugin.
Clearing Cookies and Cached Files
Our authentication stores a cookie in your browser that tells us who you are.
Your web browser also can store local copies of files in cache for quicker access later.
Sometimes these files change or get corrupted, and can cause problems.
To clear cookies and cache:
There may be a problem with the browser itself. One useful approach is to try different browsers and see if the problem is unique to a specific one, or happens on multiple browsers.
If you are still having trouble, please send us an email with a picture of what you see when you encounter the error.
Please include as much detail as you can about how you got to where you were and anything else that you think may help.
BradLIVE is a Java applet. Your computer automatically downloads it from answernet and runs it within your browser using a Java Plugin.
You may test if applets run within your browser by going to Oracle's test page at http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp
