I am not sure what changed on my machine recently but now when I click on Run Locally in the Desktop Mendix Modeler I get the error: Java Development Kit (JDK) was not found. Please check the JDK directory in the Preferences dialog (Edit > Preferences). I click on the Edit Preferences button and it opens to the Preferences. My JDK directory currently reads “C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_144”. I click on Browse and it takes me to that directory (meaning the directory DOES exist.) I choose it anyway and click OK and then OK again to close Preferences and it gives the same error again. I am on Windows 10. I am not familiar enough with JDK to look in the folders to tell if it is all there or not. I also am not sure how to install it, in case that is what I need to do. Since the folder does exist I thought it might be a permissions issue. However; I ran Mendix Modeler by right-clicking and choose Run as Admin. Still get same error. This was working last week or so and I know of no changes to the system. Any ideas?
I ended up installing JDK 126.96.36.199 and it is working now.
