Don’t panic if you see the error message during upgrade of your Visual Paradigm to version 13.0.
This problem is caused by your Visual Paradigm client was upgraded form very old version and by that time it was using JRE 1.6 as the runtime. For long time ago Visual Paradigm already changed to bundle JRE 1.7 (and JRE 1.8 for Mac). Unfortunately the Visual Paradigm Update can only help to update VP software itself, but not the runtime. To deliver better features some libraries used by Visual Paradigm was upgraded in version 13.0. Unfortunately they are not compatible with the old JRE 1.6. For user experienced this problem can follow the steps below to reinstall your Visual Paradigm to version 13.0.
- Go to Visual Paradigm’s homepage and select TRY NOW to download the installer in latest version.
- Execute the downloaded installer to install the version 13.0. If previous installation was detected you can simply install it over the existing location.
- Follow the installation wizard to complete the installation.
- Your VP was upgraded to version 13.0 once the installation completes.
If you are install version 13.0 to new location then it is recommend you to uninstall the previous version from your system. This help to avoid you accidentally launched the old version. You can execute the uninstaller inside %VP installation directory%/uninstaller folder to remove the previous version.
