Q: What JVM is being used in PDF Studio and how can I use a different one?

A: If PDF Studio is already installed on your machine, you can check what JVM is being used by launching PDF Studio and going to Help > About PDF Studio.

When installing PDF Studio on Linux, we recommend to use our Linux installer which comes packaged with the 1.17 Oracle JVM. Our  Linux 64 bit installer comes packaged with Oracle Java Version 17.0.8, 64-bit, Eclipse Adoptium. The JVM will be installed in the PDF Studio installation directory under a folder called /jre, and will only be used by PDF Studio. It will not affect any of your other java programs.

If you use our Unix installer, which comes with no JVM, PDF Studio will run using a JVM already installed on your machine.

Notes: We will only provide support when using the JRE that was originally packaged with PDF Studio as alternate JREs could cause issues.
