Hi guys, I asked elsewhere but was told I should ask here too.

A while ago I went to start ArchiCAD (it was working perfectly the day before) and it kept throwing java platform errors

I've tried everything I can find on google and tried every version of Java recommended. I wasn't even able to uninstall ArchiCAD without getting the same errors. I ended up deleting the whole program from the drive directly and now I can't reinstall it either. It worked fine on a guest account I created to test but my main user account just refuses to play nice... Not sure what it could be as Java seems to work perfectly fine in every other instance for any other program. Any idea's what could be done to make this work again short of reinstalling my entire PC or working on a guest account whenever I need to use ArchiCAD?

Seeing as you have to re-install Archicad anyway, try deleting ALL versions of Java on your machine.
Archicad will install the correct version it needs.
You can always update JAVA after you finish installing Archicad if you need to.

I've done this also, it will install its own java and then crash again.
