First time sikuli user, after download and run, it crashes.

Asked by Bryan on 2019-05-02

First time to use Sikuli 1.1.4 . Want to try the tool for our application.

Steps:
1. Dowloaded The Jython interpreter 2.7.1 for python scripting (the default)
2. put on Downloads/sikuli
3. Downloaded Download the ready to use sikulix.jar (SikuliX IDE)
4. put on Downloads/sikuli
5. run sikuli.jar
6. Sikuli window displays for 2 secs then crashes.

Java version 1.8.0_211

Did I miss any step?

Thank you!

Just tested on my Windows 10 with Java 8

After download from https://raiman.github.io/SikuliX1/downloads.html I have in my folder Downloads/sikuli the 2 files:
sikulix.jar
jython-standalone-2.7.1.jar

Double click on sikulix.jar starts the IDE as expected and moves the jython-standalone-2.7.1.jar to the extensions folder in %APPDATA%/Sikulix

You might try from a command window:
java -jar Downloads\sikuli\sikulix.jar -v

and watch the debug log output

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #5

ok, you should have the idea window now!?

otherwise run:
java -jar sikulix.jar -v -c

Bryan (bryanvaldellon) said : #6

Hi, Sorry It's my first time to encounter this. Still crashing.
Not yet tried to run the .jar via Admin, I'm not sure if it will fix the issue.

Do you have any advise?

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #7

rather sure, that this is the problem:
C:\Users\Testcom1\Downloads\Bryan\Test Automation\installers\sukuli2

there is a space in the path ...\Test Automation\...

change to
...\TestAutomation\...

or
...\Test_Automation\...

or
...\Test-Automation\...

I have to fix this odd behavior ;-)

... but I always recommend to use path/file names (at least with SikuliX) that only contain:
letters, numbers, hyphen and underscore (no spaces, no other special characters!)

Bryan (bryanvaldellon) said : #8

Hello RaiMan,

Thanks for the quick reply. Tried to remove the space on the 'Test Automation' folder. see the log below.

also did add a Pref key on registry as suggested on stackoverflow but still not resolved.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\JavaSoft
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\JavaSoft

rather strange :-(

please run with

Bryan (bryanvaldellon) said : #10

Hello RaiMan,

it looks like the admin is blocking this. Checked the event blocker and saw that

"Information: The application C:\Users\Testcom1\Downloads\Bryan\TestAutomation\installers\sikuliz\sikulix.jar invoked the application C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe. The operation was blocked and the application terminated by Confer."

already raised to our Infra team. will update you once it is whitelisted.

Thanks!

Can you help with this problem?
