Scout app throwing an argumenterror #3214 on Win XP German.
Please note that the problem will be resolved setting the right location of the java.exe at file process_interaction.js on line 106 inside function javaDir().

The path starts with 'Program Files' which is not the standard location on a german Win XP.
Changeing Program files to Programme will resolve this issue but it's only a workaround.

The best to prevent this is to ask for the location where Scout will be installed to and take this path to build the correct pathes inside the function javaDir.

So with a german Windows XP the path variable should look like this:
path = air.File.applicationDirectory.resolvePath("C:\Programme\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe");



@upstroke, thanks for the report. I think you're right. I hadn't even considered this and ScoutApp should allow people to confirm (or at least change) the location of their Java installation.


@upstroke @zdennis I'm using Windows 8 Portuguese and have the same problem. How can I fix that?


Oh, it's nothing. I forgot that my Java was not installed LOL
