PDI 8.2 gui issue

Question asked by Thomas Toale on Jan 21, 2019

Lookig for some help here.  Brand new user to PDI and looking to see if I like it.

I downoaded and installed PDI v 8.2.0.0-342

Using Windows 7 "home edition" - 64 bit/ with 8gb ram

 

java version "1.8.0_191"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_191-b12)

Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.191-b12, mixed mode)

*created JAVA_HOME system variable.

 

When I kick off spoon.bat the gui loads fine.  I can display the componenst of the view and  Design tabs.

Howeever, if I right click database connections I the app hangs.

 

I tired running 5.1 and doing the same - right clicking database connectns, I receive "General error in dialogue".  Click on details.... and get..

 

java.lang.NullPointerException
