"Java virtual Machine Error" on Design Studio Startup


A "Java virtual Machine Error" occurs when restarting Design Studio after the installation of an extension.


  • Delete the Analysis Config directory (default location: C:\Users\<user>\Analysis-config)
  • In the "Designstudio.ini" file located in your Design Studio installation directory you can change the entry "-Xmx1024m" to "-Xmx512m". This adjusts the memory usage of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM)
  • If the error still occurs, please check whether the "Java Path" is correct.
