After running the installer, you may note that no icon is placed on the desktop.
If you run C:\JReport\Designer\bin\JReport.bat, you receive an error like the following:
The folder "$USER_INSTALL_DIR$" is not REPORTHOME
please set the correct REPORTHOME
Press any key to continue . . .
The instructions below will walk you through fixing this issue or you can watch our tutorial video.
To resolve this:
- Update the setenv.bat file located in C:\JReport\Designer\bin\ directory.
Update the REPORTHOME line to reflect your JReport Designer installation directory and your JAVAHOME line to reflect your JDK installation directory.
Ensure that neither path has a trailing backslash (`\`). For example, you want this:
Rather than this:
- Once you update the setenv.bat file as appropriate to your installation, try running JReport.bat once more. It may give you this message:
C:\JReport\Designer\bin\report.ini is corrupted. Make sure it's in correct format.
Press Enter key to continue.
If that happens, replace the report.ini file from the C:\JReport\Designer\bin\ folder with the zipped report.ini file that is attached here. Note that the file refers to the default installation path of C:\JReport\Designer. If your installation differs, you will need to update the report.ini file to reflect the correct path.
- Create an icon for your user by navigating to the JReport.bat file in C:\JReport\Designer\bin\, right-clicking and sending to the desktop (create shortcut).
You can even change the icon on that shortcut to the icon file located in C:\JReport\Designer to keep things consistent.
