is there an option to set a specific JRE for Creo, Windchill, ...
We are limited to Java 7 because of Windchill 10.2. So I'd like to install Java 7 in a seperate Folder and use it only for Creo.
We are using the mozilla based browser.
I am a little out of the loop here, but I'm pretty sure that if you're at the right MOR/CPS/patch level of 10.2 then JRE 8 is supported. If so, then getting to that MOR/CPS/patch level and moving to JRE 8 would be the recommended course of action.
I say that for 2 reasons:
Take a look at this article: https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS165748
Java 8 on client side (JRE):
So, yes, given an appropriate MOR/CPS level, 10.2 supports JRE 8 (and even 10.1 does given the right patch).
And the recommended solution would thus be to move to the appropriate MOR/CPS level and use JRE 8.
for Creo you can select JRE with PRO_JAVA_COMMAND to e.g. C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_231\bin\java (don't add .exe)
Windchill will use Browser default, but there are very few Java Applets left. afaik.
