Problem Description: When I try to start ColdFusion Builder 3, I get the error that I must be running Java (JDK 1.6), but I am using Java 8 (JDK1.8.65) Is there a fix for this. I heard that there was a beta of ColdFusion Builder, is it possible to get on the list;that is, if it is useable with Java 8.

Hi, in the CF Builder.ini file: Do I erase what is just under the -vm arg, and replace it with: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_65.jdk Thanks so much for your help! Johnny

We recommend to add all arguments in eclipse.ini --> </array> I changed this, to show where the idk is home <string>-vm</string><string>/Applications/ColdFusionBuilder3/jre/Contents/Home/jre/lib/server/libjvm.dylib</string><string>-keyring</string><string>~/.eclipse_keyring</string> <string>/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_65.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/server/libjvm.dylib</string> Please re open this ticket and help me get ColdFusion Builder running Thanks, Johnny
