I have recently updated Java to Java 8 update 25 (8.0.250), installed both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions as I run the 64-bit version of Construct 2, and lastly I uninstalled the older version of Java.
Now when I try to minify on export I'm getting the "Unable to run the script minifier. Please ensure you have Java installed." error in C2 (r184).
Anyone else had trouble minifying after updating Java?
I just tried it with the latest update and it still works fine here.
I figured it was a problem with my machine, since I didn't see any other reports on this.
If anyone has any suggestions I'd be grateful.
I think there is an issue with the 64 bit version not being pointed to the right place.
I've same problem, tried to manual install the java 64-bit version but still the same...
Windows 8.1 64-bit
Java 8 update 25 (64-bit)
Java SE Development kit 8 update 20 (64-bit) (<- I'm using eclipse too)
Same problem as well here
Construct 2 180 (64-bit)
Windows 8.1 64bit
Java 8 Update 25 (64-bit)
So it might be a bug right?
newt Could you point me to a source on that?
I don't know what could have happened, C2 just runs the minifier the same way you run java apps from the command line: java -jar something.jar. If you can run java apps that way still then C2 should be able to as well.
Note the part about suggesting you use 32 bit.
No proof positive, but I uninstalled the 64 bit, and reinstalled the 32, and its now working.
I've tried uninstalling, installing 32-bit, 64-bit version, all combinations and nothing... don't know what to do do anymore, I can run the java trough command line without problems so the path is correct, any more suggestions?

I'm having the same problem. Tried it on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions and it's still not working. Can anyone shed some light on this?
I uninstalled the 64-bit version of Construct and installed the 32-bit version and now the minifier works. Yay!
Yea, seems to be a problem with the 64-bit version of Java.
I also updated to Java 8 update 25 with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, and 'minify script' has stopped working with the error message: "Unable to run the script modifier. Please ensure you have Java installed..."
Please help me Obiwan kenobi!!!
