RapidMiner doesn't launch

Hi, I am new to RapidMiner. I am on the free version, just intended for Academic use. I installed last month and completed several tutorials with no problems. Then last week, RapidMiner would only launch into Safe Mode and then suddenly quit. Now it doesn't launch at all. I have reinstalled it twice and updated Java too. Just nothing happens when I click on the icon to launch the application. When I go to the Windows task manager, I can see a RapidMiner process, but it's doing nothing and consuming only 1.4MB RAM.

I haven't been able to use it for over a week now.

I am on a Windows 10. 64-bit system.

    hi @julianhatwell hmm did you update Java beyond Java8? If so, that would be the cause of your problem. RapidMiner will not run on higher versions of Java (see https://docs.rapidminer.com/latest/studio/installation/system-requirements.html and numerous threads here on the community).

    Rapidminer on Windows doesn't need to know about a separate installation of java unless you download the Linux version. I would uninstall Rapidminer and Java and then if you have to, clear any paths that were automatically created in your Windows environment variables. You should be able to reinstall Rapidminer after that. Most java problems relate to paths.

    thanks @hughesfleming68 and @fiddinyusfida - we went offline and it's an unusual local setup. I appreciate your help.
