FileBot won't start/doesn't show on the screen

Post by 33M4zReQA4Myr3yh » 18 Aug 2019, 17:59

I was using an older version of filebot and then Java updated and filebot wouldn't start. I installed the newest version of filebot available and that wouldn't start either, I deleted all versions of Java off my pc and installed the three available on ninite:
64-bit Java Runetime (JRE) 8u222-b10
32-bit Java Runetime (JRE) 8u222-b10
64-bit Java Runetime (JRE) 11.0.4
and it still won't run. Which version of Java do I need to use with the latest version of Filebot (4.8.5 x64)?

None. FileBot uses its own private embedded JRE. The public JRE that you may or may not have installed on your system has no effect on FileBot.

:idea: Perhaps screenshots or logs will shed some light on this mystery?

:idea: Make sure to uninstall all versions of FileBot, and then only install the latest version of FileBot. You can also try to reset preferences to make sure the window is not displayed outside of the screen bounds.
