v.6.08.00 RC2

This marks a release candidate for 6.08.00.

Prerequisites:

Java 11 aka Java 55 aka 18.09 or 18.10.

PCGEN 6.08.00 RC2 is not compatible with Java 10 (or earlier) and it is NOT SUPPORTED. To get the latest version of Java, go to AdoptOpenJDK. PCGen has been tested with OpenJDK and AdoptOpenJDK Java 11 (including the JRE). We decided to use Java 11 as this is a 3-year supported (Long Term Support), Java 8 is no longer updated.

Be aware that due to Oracle's new Licensing, and lack of availability of the Java 11 public releases, we are recommending OpenJDK alternative. AdoptOpenJDK also have JREs (Normal Java) for the end users that is not installed and may take an extra couple of steps to make work. If this is not something you want to worry about, then please use the WINDOWS INSTALLER version of PCGen, as this comes with embedded JREs for both x86 and x64 Windows OS's. For those that want to do the manual installation, please see below for the 'How to Install' links below for your Operating System.

HELP! The .exe doesn't work for me with OpenJDK.

If you have it installed correctly, you can use http://johann.loefflmann.net/en/software/jarfix/index.html to reset association for the .jar file, and that works.

NOTE: The specific files for loading PCGen are as follows:

  • pcgen.exe (Main Executable for Windows)
  • pcgen.bat (Command Line Executable for Windows)
  • pcgen.sh (Command Line Executable for Linux)
  • pcgen,jar (Java Executable file - Mac users)
    ** There are no .dmg builds for MacOS, please use the pcgen.jar file method.

Please direct all help inquires to our new Media Channels:
