I need to install Spark on Vista but its not compatible
Can you define “Not Compatible”
- Do you get an error message? If so what is the error?
- Does it crash on startup with out an error?
- Has it worked before?
- What verison of java do you have?
I don’t want to be a jerk, but you’ll get a lot more help quicker if you put a little more into it. Don’t forget, your asking a community of people for free support. It’s really easy for others to ignore a question with no substance.
I’ve been running Spark on Vista for some time now and it’s running perfectly normal.
I also have been running Spark on Vista 64bit for months now.
Let me shed a little light on the situaiton then. I’m running Vista Business SP1, MS Office 2007 Enterprise and a few other various program. No anti-virus at this time.
I’ve downloaded the latest version of Spark and installed it successfully on this machine.
Wheh I try to start it, I get nothign. No hits, no runs, no errors. No entry in the error.log file, no windows with fatal error, nothing. Checking the task manager shows nothing.
So, as far as I can tell, it doesn’t start and it doesn’t error out.
I’ve seen this on a few systems. The main issue I normall see is that permissions don’t get set correctly on the C:\Program Files\Spark folder. Make sure your users (or if in a domain, Domain Users group) has full control to the folder. On first run, it has to complete the install/unpack files. The normal symptom is you click Spark.exe and nothing happens (no processes, etc…).
Hope this helps!
I changed the premissions to ensure that “Users” had full control, I changed the ownership to myself and reran. I’m now getting the following Java Error:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/sun/java/util/jar/pack/UnpackerImpl at java.util.jar.Pack200.newInstance(Unknown Source) at java.util.jar.Pack200.newUnpacker(Unknown Source) at org.jivesoftware.launcher.Startup.unpackArchives(Startup.java:149) at org.jivesoftware.launcher.Startup.start(Startup.java:63) at org.jivesoftware.launcher.Startup.main(Startup.java:35)
Do you have the UAC enabled ? We had to disable it as well.
Here was our exact steps (we deployed with GPO).
Used 2.5.8 MSI
Reset folder permissions to “Domain Users” full control
We had a issue on a few machines, we still have not fixed but this worked on 95% of the 150 machines we pushed too…
Hope this helps,
That got it, thanks! It’s working now.
HI All ,
I have strange issue with Spark on Windows vista 64 Bit .Everything works fine expect the sip Phone it just hangs when i try to call the phone is registered but it gets hanged and nothing happens.I have later download the src and run the code it compiled well and then i went to target\build\bin and ran startup.bat and evrything works well even the sipphone too i can make calls outside But now i wanted to know why i have trouble with build of Spark which is the installed and i install siphone don’t work any clues please .
So, probably siphone in the installer isn’t built for 64-bit systems. What about the latest RC2 version? http://bamboo.igniterealtime.org/browse/SPARK-INSTALL4J-207/artifact/Install4j
Thank you for your Quick responce . I guess you have got it wrong what i’m trying to tell you let me explain again.I have download Spark 2.5.8 and later i did download spark_2_6_0_12193 and now i have downloaded and installed .I open the file spark i get the dailpad and other stuff When i call any number nothing happens and the programme hangs up for a while and and again start working but nothing happens.
I have downloaded the source code of spark 2.5.8 i have followed the instructions how to build the application after the application is built we have target folder so i now go to target/build/bin and run startup.bat and the application run and even the sip phone works i can make calls I hear the ring or even if phone if off or out of coverage areas i hear all the telecom messages ,But once the call is connected i hear nothing and even on other side too.
PC-PC calling also fails on all applications giving the message you might be behind the firewall but that is not true there is no firewall.
Red5 applictions works but its only 1 side which means other party cannot hear me nor see me I can see them and hear them too.
I’m doning lot of home work on your product the reason i’m a big Fan i love it really now i have made a thought to do some project on voip Like Fring your features are similar to fring but Desktop based i see there is a future for such stuff still. Let me know if there is anyway around to make this work .
So. It is not working at all for you on x64 Vista. Well, i don’t use sip phone or pc-pc calls. When i tried long time ago, sometimes it was possible to do pc-pc call. Anyway, this feature probably needs a reworking or fixing, or maybe it will be replaced with the Redfire plugin. Can’t suggest anything. Btw, i’m not a developer or owner if this software, just a long time user
Thank you i understand .I was just updating the problems what i have faced with the recent development.We are trying to build voip solution using Openfire its a replacement of many softwares I personally see there is a future with this product .
