You can execute Line6 Edit without install JRE 1.6 on Windows 10

line6-captura

This wonderful software, let us modify our Line 6 patches.

It works on:

  • Bass PODxt, Bass PODxt Live, Bass PODxt Pro
  • Flextone II, Flextone III
  • HD147
  • POD 2.0, POD Pro, PODxt, PODxt Live, PODxt Pro
  • Vetta II Combo. Vetta II Head

But, it was in the past, because it doesn’t support Windows 10. Anyway, it supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.

Ok ok, Windows 8 it’s fine….. main problem is: it needs Java (hell) version 1.6 JRE.

At this moment, Oracle has released version 1.8. Maybe, we will have another release tomorrow, and so on. I remember happy times when you only should take care about Microsoft’s version each four years…

Good news: you can run Line6 Edit without install JRE 1.6

Prerequisites

  • Install 7zip software to uncompress all the packages (http://www.7-zip.org/)
  • Make a directory in the filesystem, for example “C:\Line6” or whatever
  • In this folder, download JRE 1.6 (¡x586 version!) from Oracle’s page (deprecated versions). You must be sure to download this version:
    Windows x86 Offline 16.3 MB jre-6u45-windows-i586.exe
  • In the same folder, Download Line6 Edit (http://line6.com/software/index.html)


At this point, you should have these files in this folder:

Proccess

  1. Open CMD in the folder you have created (C:\Line6)
  2. In this folder, run the following script or execute it line by line
REM Set path to 7zip
SET PATH=%PATH%;"c:\Program Files\7-Zip"

REM Extract Line6Edit Java classes
7z.exe x "Line 6 Edit v3.04.0 Installer.exe" -oc:Line6_tmp
7z.exe x "Line6_tmp\Line 6 Edit\Line 6 Edit.exe" -oc:Line6_Edit_16

REM PREPARE JAVA_16 ENV
7z.exe x -y jre-6u45-windows-i586.exe core.zip -oc:Line6_tmp
7z.exe x Line6_tmp\core.zip -oc:Line6_Edit_16\JAVA_16

SET JAVA_HOME=%CD%\Line6_Edit_16\JAVA_16
"%JAVA_HOME%"\bin\unpack200 -r -v -l "" "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\deploy.pack "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\deploy.jar
"%JAVA_HOME%"\bin\unpack200 -r -v -l "" "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\charsets.pack "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\charsets.jar
"%JAVA_HOME%"\bin\unpack200 -r -v -l "" "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\rt.pack "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\rt.jar
"%JAVA_HOME%"\bin\unpack200 -r -v -l "" "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\javaws.pack "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\javaws.jar
"%JAVA_HOME%"\bin\unpack200 -r -v -l "" "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\jsse.pack "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\jsse.jar
"%JAVA_HOME%"\bin\unpack200 -r -v -l "" "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\plugin.pack "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\plugin.jar
"%JAVA_HOME%"\bin\unpack200 -r -v -l "" "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\ext\localedata.pack "%JAVA_HOME%"\lib\ext\localedata.jar

REM Clean all
RD /S /Q Line6_tmp

REM Run Line6Edit
echo SET JAVA_HOME=%%CD%%\JAVA_16> Line6_Edit_16\run.bat
echo "%%JAVA_HOME%%"\bin\java.exe line6editapp.L6Line6EditApp>> Line6_Edit_16\run.bat

This above script is used to:

  • Create a JRE 1.6 environment
  • Extract Line 6 Edit classes
  • Generate a script to run Line 6 Edit with Java 1.6 environment. This script is Line6_Edit_16\run.bat

3. Double click on Line6_Edit_16\run.bat

You can delete all files and directories but you must keep Line6_Edit_16 folder. Every time you want to open the program, you can launch run.bat script. This folder is portable, you can copy to another directory.

 

Now you can edit your patch for Comfortably Numb

    I wont work for me either. I get this:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Line6\Line 6 Edit>D:\Temp\core\bin\java line6editapp.L6Line6EditApp

    Error occurred during initialization of VM
    java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object

    • trasteator

      You were right. I have changed the tutorial. Now, it’s much easier than the older one.

  3. Now I can run Edit witout any errors, but I still can’t connet my felxtone III.
    I am trying to use my old cheap USB-MIDI interface as have done well before so I guess that this can’t be the problem.
