The automatically determined startup settings may be wrong or some other unknown problem exists.


The exact cause may be difficult to determine because there is no debug output of the .exe itself. To try and locate the problem, follow these steps:

  1. Go to your user home folder and switch to the /.RapidMiner subfolder.

  2. Open the
    file. It is generated each time prior to RapidMiner Studio startup.

  3. Check if there are any errors or the parameters given to the JVM are broken.

To start RapidMiner Studio regardless, you can use the RapidMiner-Studio.bat file. If that also fails, please start the .bat file from the command line to observe possible errors.

Note that if using said script, updating RapidMiner Studio will
work if it is installed in a protected location like C:\Program Files.
