View Full Version : "Could not open the pipe" with SDK Tools 1.2.3

I'm using Windows Server 2008 R2 64.

C:\eApplications\app>sencha build -p app.jsb3 -d ./ -v

What is the cause of that issue? I saw people having the same error in the past, the discussion has been archived and since that it's a new version of the SDK Tools...

Mmm... an alternative question would be to ask: when are we going to have a Sencha Tools SDK which actually work with Windows (it seems many people have many issues, of different types)? And maybe with a clearer documentation about it, it's rather annoying to look for piece of information there and there all the time.

If you're on Windows 64-bit that will cause this error. See this link: http://blog.techferry.com/2012/01/13/ext-js-deployment-sencha-sdk-tools-correct-usage/#Stream:-Could-not-open-the-pipe-exec:-java-jar

Sencha people - can you update the Windows SDK Tools release notes to clarify that 32-bit Java is required? In fact, having Release Notes at all, either packaged or linked online somewhere, would be helpful to avoid any confusion.
