Can not start Jasper Studio


Recommended Posts


I've downloaded Jasper Studio 6.4.3, and alter 6.3.1, but I'm unable to launch it. Each time it fails after a long time and the logs contains the following statement:

and so on...

My OS is Win 7, I have the same issue if Itry to run it normally or "as administrator". I've seen this issue in some other posts on Internet, but with no real solution.

Your help is welcome

Hello Hozawa,

Thanks for your reply. I've tried actually many times to remove all these lock files, but it doesn't solve the issue. I did install 6.4.3 first, uninstall it and tried with 6.3.1.

It looks like a quite common issue around eclipse, but with no real answer to solve the issue.

Hi stephane.davy,

This may be a possible but crude solution, depending on what eclipse instances exist on your computer.

I had this exact issue attempting to run JasperReport Studio 6.4.3, and in my case, I have had (and still have) many eclipse versions on my machine, as well as multiple versions of Jaspersoft Studio (5.5, 6.1, and possibly 6.3). The only thing that worked for me was going to C:Users<your username and checking for the existence of .eclipse folder.

I tried removing various lock files in the subfolders, but ultimately what worked was taking the entire C:Users<your username.eclipse folder and moving it somewhere else (or deleting it, but I renamed/moved it in order to keep it handy just in case). Please note that this may be breaking or tampering with configurations of other eclipse instances that exist on your computer, so I do encourage backing up that .eclipse folder rather than deleting. 

Interestingly, Jaspersoft Studio 6.4.3 worked after this operation, but didn't need to re-create .eclipse at all.. it just launched without complaining.

If this worked for you as well, I suppose it confirms that Jaspersoft Studio confusingly, and erroneously looks for configuration information outside of it's own configuration folder. I'll try submitting a bug report for this and see if it's acknowledged.

This re-occurred for me. The follow-up solution was to, since the above solution is no longer valid (namely because that folder was already moved/removed/renamed), Jaspersoft Studio 6.4.3 found issue with some of the .fileTableLock and .tmp*.instance files in the folders and subfolders of ./configuration of the Jaspersoft Studio program folder. I simply deleted those and it started up again. 

Perhaps starting -clean as a command line argument or alternatively as a .ini parameter does this quicker, but I'm not sure.

Hello jswizardry,

Thanks for your answer. Actually, I also tried to remove .eclipse and all the directories you mentionned, but it doesn't really change the behavior. By the way, I've been able to start it maybe 3 times over 30 attempts.

I've read some similar thread related to eclipse only, some people said that it can be related to the Antivirus, but unfortunatly I'm on a corporate PC on which it's not possible to modify antivirus policy.

Hi stephane.davy, 

Not sure if you are still wrestling with this. But what I have learned and concluded are the following:

- .eclipse is not the only folder that will impede Jasper's ability to start. I noticed other folders on other workstations, such as one related to ireport (I think it was .ireport or something similar) that can do the same. There's no easy way to determine which folders Jasper is searching for, scanning, and crashing itself with the existence of. Very frustrating.
- Installation of this version is clearly buggy and needs fixing. Perhaps improved in the later versions that have appeared since then ( I think 6.5.1 is out now).

I hope things worked out on your end. Best,
