Problems with program updates since installing Java 8

Postby Oswulf » Thu Jan 12, 2017 11:50 pm

I recently installed Oracle Java 8 (specifically jre1.8.0_112) on LDME 2, 64 bit. Since then every installation via Update Manager seems to be failing with error messages relating to .pack files (plugin.pack, javaws.pack, etc.). These files don't exist. However, there are corresponding .jar files (plugin.jar, javaws.jar, etc.) in the correct directories. Is there a way to fix this? I had thought about simply renaming the .jar files to .pack, but fear this might break something else.

Thanks.
