I am hoping somebody can help me. I have downloaded and installed iReport-4.6.0-windows-installer.exe from http://jasperforge.org//website/ireportwebsite/IR%20Website/ir_download.html?header=project&target=ireport
When I try to launch the program, I get the spinner for about 2 seconds but nothing happens. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but to no avail.
Can somebody help me please?
It could be a couple of things:
- not enough memory for iReport - you can configure how much memory the JVM for it uses by editing the ireport.conf file, which you can find under the etc directory. Edit the default_options parameter, and modify the -Xms and -Xmx values to something higher, like 1024m. The MaxPermSize could be lower too, maybe just 128m.
- Windows 7 - I also have a Windows 7 machine, it's 64-bit. I used to have problems with iReport too, until I changed the JDK. If your system is also 64-bit, I would suggest downloading JDK 1.7 (there's a specific 64-bit version), and modify the jdkhome variable in ireport.conf to point at JDK 1.7.
