Installing Sci2


If you're installation of Java is located in another directory on your system, you'll need to replace the path to javaw.exe with the one you find on your system. Save the file in the Sci2 installation and you should be able to start the tool.


Q: I am having trouble running Sci2 on a Windows, I received an error message that starts with, "Java was started by returned exit code=13". What should I do?

A: The error message that you have received is caused by trying to run Sci2 with the incorrect version of Java required by the tool. For example, if you download the 64-bit version of Sci2, but only have a copy of 32-bit Java installed on your computer, Sci2 will try to run but it will produce this error. To solve this problem, you will need to verify the version of Java installed on your computer.

If Sci2 fails to run, and you find that Java is installed in the Program Files (86x) directory, then you have 32-bit Java installed and need to install 64-bit Java. Likewise, if Java is installed in the Program Files directory, hen you have 64-bit Java installed and need to install 32-bit Java.You will need to either try downloading the appropriate 32-bit or 64-bit version of Sci2, or install the appropriate version of Java and make sure that Sci2's instillation file is updated with the correct path to the new version of Java,

Q: I am having trouble installing and running Sci2 on a Mac OS X Mavericks or later. What should I do?
