Java could not be launched

When I tried to run rapidminer I got the message 'Java could not be launched'. Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't work either. I attached the error report file, all important information should be in there. Is someone able to help me?

    Yes. This is an issue. I am just installing 9.8 and I got this message after the installation. I have the .rapidminer folder from the last version backed up along with several older versions which I can start from the command line so this was a fresh install. I just tried installing 9.72 again and that works fine using the regular windows installer. This is specific to 9.8. I will download the linux version and get that up and running.

    I didn't have a problem installing 9.8 over 9.72 so this might just affect a fresh install.

    @Clenterra, I am looking for a workaround so check back here soon. This is probably only affecting certain users.

    I see from the log that you were running out of memory. Make sure that you close all other applications when you start the install and that your computer meets the minimum requirements.

    How much memory do you have?

    Can you please start Studio via the RapidMiner Studio.bat file? That should give a more meaningful error. The .exe unfortunately is notorious for not providing nice error reasons

    I solved this problem by uninstalling Riva Tuner
