    I have opened the and copied the files “Breakout Server.exe” and rxtxSerial.dll to \Breakout\Server

    When I try to start the server, it appears a popup window, with an alert signal, and an unreadable message. The only two things I can read in the message are “JavaVM” and “jvm.dll”

    I have previously used rxtxSerial.dll, from, because my system is x64, so I could not use the one from

    Anyway, I tryed my previous x64 dll, and the error continues.


    Can you temporarily switch to a 32-bit JVM and see if that makes any difference. That will help determine if the issue is with the dll.


    With 32-bit JVM it runs ok

    I also tried on my Ubuntu netbook, and it is ok

    Thank you


    I looked into this further. Currently a 32-bit JVM is required, however it seems you can have both a 32-bit and 64-bit JVM installed concurrently without any issue (the app will simply default to the 32-bit version… which is why I had overlooked this issue). I also looked at the Arduino source code to see how they are supporting 64-bit Windows and it appears that Arduino for Windows actually includes it’s own copy of a 32-bit JVM that runs locally. I’ll try to add native java 64-bit in a future release. In the time being I hope that installing a 32-bit JVM is not an issue.
