I am planning to attend the Datavyu training workshop on Monday and had some problems with the installation. My computer is running Windows 8.1 x64 with 32- and 64- bit versions of Java 8 update 31 installed. I followed the instructions in the Datavyu user's guide to install QuickTime, including QuickTime for Java. I am able to open Datavyu but when I attempt to "add data," I get a pop-up message saying that "Quicktime's Java libraries are not found." Do you have suggestions on how to resolve this problem?

Can you please try using Java 7? That might be what is causing the issue. Please let me know if that works for you.

Thanks! Installing 32-bit JRE 7 and restarting my computer worked. For anyone else having this problem, 64-bit JRE 7 did not work.

I know you now have instructions on the website for enabling Java libraries when installing Quicktime for the first time. If you've already installed Quicktime (or if you ever update your Quicktime after having installed it as per the instructions on the Datavyu website), you can modify it on a Windows computer by going to Control Panel -> Programs -> Program Features -> Quicktime and then following the instructions on the Datavyu website.

(I've had to look that up more than once after updating my Quicktime and figured I'd save others some time.)
