Do you have problems installing YAWL or  using the YAWL Editor in Windows 10 and recent JAVA versions?

We have tried installing YAWL running a Windows 10 Pro version 10.0.17134 Build 17134 and a Java JDK 12.0.1. The problem here is that the YAWL installer does not find the JAVA runtime. The solution is to install Java JDK 1.8.0_211. The installation instructions in the YAWL User Manual will be updated soon to reflect this fact.

Another problem that has been reported by several users with Windows 10 was that the YAWL Editor has problems opening certain menus or to scroll properly. This may be related to problems with SWING. A workaround here - although not 100% failsafe - is describe here:

  1. Find java.exe you installed.
  2. Right click -> Properties
  3. Go to Compatibility tab
  4. Check Override high DPI scaling behavior.
  5. Choose System for Scaling performed by:
