Post Oh NOES, Java woes

Sandy, I know this is an old issue that makes you twitch every time it comes up. I went through the old messages on the forum, hoping I forgot something was found to fix this, but, no.

The Java 32/64 bit controller issue. 🙁

I needed to install 64-bit Java to run something unrelated to polargraph. After doing that, our beloved controller wouldn't work -- neither 32 nor 64-bit versions (not working=a java entry seen starting in the task manager, using much RAM, but controller window never appears).

I now have both versions of java installed, and other java apps I use still work (both 32 and 64-bit apps), just not the controller.

Any ideas? Pointing the controller to right java? Setting a path?

Windows 10
JRE-8 update201
Tried both old and latest controller, 32 and 64-bit

There's good news and bad news:

The good: I got the controller to work! (both bit versions!)

The bad: I don't really know how. I reinstalled java 32-bit, and everything is dandy. I don't know why everything works now. Why would reinstalling 32-bit java get the 64-bit controller to work for the first time in my ~6 years of polargraphing?

It's hubris to ask, I suppose -- I'll just be glad everything's working, and without having to sacrifice a virgin or anything.

Java, I'm not angry, I'm just disappointed. You've embarrassed me in front of my friends again...
