v9t9 and windows 10 / java 1.8.0_261

Recommended Posts

I have v9t9 running on my windows 10 pro but the sound doesn't work. This appears in the  command window:


"java version "1.8.0_261"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_261-b12)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.261-b12, mixed mode)
WARNING: Found unknown Windows version: Windows 10
Attempting to use default windows plug-in.

        at ejs.base.sound.Win32SoundListener$1.run(Win32SoundListener.java:211)

Is there a fix or work around?

Now V9T9 works!!  Here is the work around:


The author instructed me to install Zulu SDK version 8 (no higher).


It is here: https://www.azul.com/downloads/zulu-community/?version=java-8-lts&os=windows&architecture=x86-64-bit&package=jdk


Then I edited the .bat file by adding this PATH statement:

PATH="c:\Program Files\Zulu\zulu-8\bin";%PATH%


Voila, V9T9 sound and speech works on Windows 10. And it seems the game modules and disk drive setup works too; although to what extent, I am not sure. But Parsec works and so does TI-Writer and I Editor/Assembler starts.


Thank you Ed!!


Hope this helps others.
