VP for UML 6.0 crashes on startup

When I start up Visual Paradigm for UML 6.0 (Modeler Edition) the application opens and then immediately vanishes.

Log file attached. Please advise.

Hello Mark,

The VP-UML 6.0 is a very old build. May I know are you using this build previously (and without any problem), or just get it from somewhere?

Hi,

Yes been using without issue on another PC - I am using this version cause it is the only version I am licensed for. It was working until quite recently.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for replying. Could you please try to use JRE 1.6 with the following steps to see if you can start VP-UML 6.0 without any problem?

  1. shutdown VP-UML
  2. download the JRE package at the following link
    https://cds.sun.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/WFS/CDS-CDS_Developer-Site/en_US/-/USD/ViewProductDetail-Start?ProductRef=jre-6u15-oth-JPR@CDS-CDS_Developer
  3. rename the “jre” folder inside VP Suite installation folder into something else
  4. install JRE and copy the JRE package into the VP Suite installation folder (make sure the copied package is named “jre”)
  5. restart VP-UML and try to print

Look forward to hearing your response.

Best regards,

Hi,

The JRE fix worked perfectly and VP is launching, modelling and printing 100% now.

Many thanks,
Mark.

Hi Mark,
