Error Installing AAF Developer Studio


I downloaded the tar.gz file for AAF Developer Studio. Whenever I try to run the Developer Studio, I get this error always: !MESSAGE Bundle initial@reference:file:plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator_1.0.300.v20110815-1744.jar was not resolved.

I have a Mac OS 11.1. I have Installed Java 8 and Java 11 on my laptop and my Eclipse supports JVM 11+ only.

Any ideas on how to fix? I can’t seem to use JVM 1.8 with the current Eclipse and there doesn’t seem to be Eclipse that can support 1.8 also. Hoping for a response. Thanks

Hi @josiah.regencia

I can successfully install AAF Developer Studio 2.0.0 version on Windows 10 64bits Java 1.8 version. I only installed Java 1.8 64bit version.
ALEOS AF Developer Studio (IDE)

java -version

java version “1.8.0_251”
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_251-b08)
Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.251-b08, mixed mode)

You can try uninstalling Java 11 version. Please install only Java 1.8 version.

Hi @Donald

Thank you for your response. I did try this one but it showed me an error that the virtual machine was not loaded. That error was fixed when I installed Java 11 with Eclipse instead. But I will try this part again. Thanks

Hi @Donald,

I uninstalled Java 11 and installed Java 1.8.
So I now have,
java version “1.8.0_271”
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_271-b09)
Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.271-b09, mixed mode)

My JAVA_HOME: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home

However: I keep on getting this error message:
The DeveloperStudioALEOS executable launcher was unable to locate its
companion shared library.

Whenever I unpack it using: gunzip -c ALEOS_AF_Dev_Studio_v2.0.0-macosx.cocoa.x86_64.tar.gz | tar xopf -

I get this error message: Failed to create the Java Virtual Machine.

I don’t have Eclipse installed since latest Eclipse only supports Java VM 11 or later.

Have you experienced this before? Thanks.


Hi josiah.regencia ,

Please try to run from the install directory.

Hi Donald,

Thank you for this. This still shows the same error. My theory about this is that because my current version of Mac OS doesn’t support Eclipse 4.2. I have a vm running an Ubuntu 18.04 and the AAF works perfectly. Thanks
