Installation Notes

Java

Oracle Java Platform 8 (JDK) must be installed. Installation packages can be downloaded from here:

Java Platform, Standard Edition: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

Note: Open-JDK cannot be used because of the lack of JavaFX support.

Java 9/10

Current version of CS-Studio doesn't run on the Java 9/10 VM. If you have installed Java 9 (possibly because you are evaluating or working with it) and Java 8, then you need to tell CS-Studio to used Java 8.

On MacOS X
  • Right-click on the ESS CS-Studio.app application and select Show Package Contents menu item;
  • Navigate into the Contents/Eclipse folder and edit the ESS CS-Studio.ini file;
  • Before --launcher.library add the following two lines:

-vm

/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_181.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/bin

where jdk1.8.0_181.jdk should be replaced by the Java 8 version you have installed.

On CentOS
  • Edit the /opt/cs-studio/ESS CS-Studio.ini file;
  • Before --launcher.library add the following two lines:

-vm

/usr/java/jdk1.8.0_181/jre/bin

where jdk1.8.0_181 should be replaced by the Java 8 version you have installed.

On Windows (Unsupported Platform)
  • Edit the ESS CS-Studio.ini file inside the application folder;
  • Before --launcher.library add the following two lines:

-vm

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_181\jre\bin\

where jdk1.8.0_181 should be replaced by the Java 8 version you have installed.

Memory

CS-Studio runs pretty well on machine with at least 4 GBytes. If it must be run from inside the ESS DM, at least 8 GBytes are necessary, allocating 4 for the DM.

css-update

The supported method to update CS-Studio in the DM is described here.

  1. Unknown User (claudiorosati) I stumbled onto this by accident. It solved my installation problems on my windows 10 when I added

    -XX:-UseCompressedOops
    -vm
    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_191\jre\bin\
    -vmargs


    The page is not part of any space, could you link/move it to where the other CS Studio pages are?

  2. Unknown User (claudiorosati)

    Hello Nicklas Holmberg

    If you installed Java 8 as your default one, you should not need to add -vm thing. Moreover remember that we don't officially support Windows. Anyway, I'll add few lines in the installation notes.

    This page is not part of any space because it is visible from the outside without need of logging into Confluence. Which are the pages you would like to have a link? If you're in Confluence you can just search for CS-Studio Releases and it comes out with the link.

    1. Ok, I just had a bit of difficulty to find the installation instructions. My intuition led me to the CS-Studio page, but I did not think to look in ESS CS-Studio Releases for these instructions.

  3. Unknown User (claudiorosati)

    OK, thank you. I'll add it to this page too.

  4. I just installed and configured CS-Studio in Debian 8, using OpenJDK and OpenJFX.

    For this, I did:

    sudo apt install openjdk-8-jdk openjfx


    Then on .ini file, I added:

    -vm

    /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64/bin/


    I hope this can help others.

    1. Unknown User (claudiorosati)

      That should be discouraged! Use Oracle JDK8 that already contains the properly configured JavaFX.

      No support will be given if Oracle JDK is not used.

      1. ok, I will install Oracle JDK then!
