Progress Explorer Tool - Windows 2008 Server

Posted by asm.alex.projetos on 21-Feb-2014 10:31

I have the Progress 9.1C version is installed on Windows 2008 Server.

The Progress Explorer Tool does not work.

Shows that the Java Virtual Machine and not compatible.

Anyone have any idea to make it work?

With all due respect, this is one of the pitfalls of trying to run ancient and obsolete software on a much more modern server. 9.1C is really out of date and you should really be looking to upgrade to at least 10.2B.

As James indicated, 9.1C was not certified on Server 2008 and in particular Progress Explorer is known not to work on that platform.  Please see this KB for a workaround:

The Windows Java VM 1.1 that Progress Explorer required was not distributed after Windows XP SP1.   To run Progress Explorer you will have to find a version of Windows that includes that release of the Windows JVM and supports it.

An unsupported workaround to get Progress Explorer to run on Windows 2008 is to create a notepad file with the extension .reg, and paste this information in it:
 
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Java VM]
"EnableLogging"=hex:00,00,00,00
"EnableJIT"=hex:00,00,00,00
Save the file as msjvm.reg and double-click it to enter it into the registry.   Microsoft disabled the MS JVM but did not remove the code.
·        The registry setting that allows the Progress Explorer tool to run on Windows 2008 Server (msjvm.reg) is a per user setting. This means that if a different user logs in or if the user profile is lost for any reason the registry file must be run again as that user.
·        While this will allow Progress Explorer to function, when run-as Administrator, Progress does not know the impact this change may have on existing installed applications. Progress suggests using this workaround with caution.
