Lightbulb Workaround to crashing when adding code - 04-19-2016, 12:33 PM

I had someone send me a program that had this same issue and was able to reproduce it on my system. As a workaround I renamed the jre folder in the Alice3 installation and created a shortcut named jre to the jre folder in my JDK, which is version 1.8.0_51. I am now able to drag tiles in and out of the code area. Putting things back the way they were causes the bug to reappear.

I submitted a bug report so hopefully the next version of Alice will have a newer JRE.

The Alice3 jre folder has

If I goto cmd and keyin c:\>java -version, I get 1.8.0_51

Crazy! Looks like someone needs to do a little cleaning. :-)
