What Java Runtime Environment should I install to get Icy working ?
Current version of Icy requires Java 7 at least to work (if your system is limited to Java 6 then you can use Icy 22.214.171.124 which is the last version supporting Java 6) but we recommend to install Java 8 which is the most robust / stable version:
- OSX: Install JDK8 (not JRE 8) that you can get from here, note that depending your OSX version you may also need to install this patch.
- Windows: Be careful to install the proper 64 bit Java on 64 bit OS as some website provides a 32 bit Java for Windows by default. We strongly recommend a 64 bit OS and JRE 8 that you can download from here.
- Linux: Avoid OpenJDK if possible (many issues / bugs), and prefer Oracle JDK 8 or Oracle JRE 8 that you can download from here.
