Description Stepan Zebra 2011-09-15 08:52:16 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201109141017)
Java: 1.7.0; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 21.0-b17
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64; Cp1252; en_US (nb)

I experienced it in two situations:
Situation 1:
Had both 32bit and 64bit FX SDKs installed.
Started NetBeans on 32bit JDK.
Default Platform selected 32bit JDK and 64bit FX SDK.
Situation 2:
Had only 32bit FX SDK installed.
Started NetBeans on 64bit JDK.
Default Platform selected 64bit JDK and 32bit FX SDK.

Reopening because of fix of

There is no good way to detect architecture of JavaFX SDK until they provide us some info explicitly.

- Target Milestone to Next
- Priority to P3

Issue was marked as resolved in FX 2.0.2. Any update?
Comment 10 Petr Somol 2013-05-29 12:59:00 UTC
This issue becomes irrelevant from NetBeans 7.4 onwards, as NB7.4 does not allow arbitrary mixing of FX SDKs with JDKs; now only the FX distributed as part of JDK is supported. Accordingly, there is no auto-detection, except of auto-detection inside current JDK distribution. This is made possible by the fact that FX is always distributed as part of JDK since JDK 7u6. For more info see Issue #229678.
