Reason Why Titanium Studio Failed to Start

The article is a quick placeholder for those who downloaded titanium studio, installed the same but failed to get it started and got Java related error.

After getting my hands dirty with Cordobva and Phonegap, I wanted to get setup with Titanium Studio. This is where I went ahead and downloaded the Titanium studio by getting myself signed up. After it got downloaded, I installed and tried to start it. However, it failed to start and throw following error:

“Java was started but returned exit code=13”

Well, after reading from some Stackoverflow pages, I went ahead and put the following code in TitaniumStudio.ini. But that failed to solve my problem.

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_02\bin\javaw.exe

This got me to do further research where I read about my system being 64-bit while Titanium 64-bit version was unavailable. Gosh! I became so upset. I went ahead and found the resolution from following page:!/guide/Prerequisites

The resolution was “The 32-bit version of the JDK is required regardless of whether Titanium is running on a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows system.

Thus, I downloaded 32-bit version of JDK1.8.0_20 and installed and placed the following configuration in my TitaniumStudio.ini file.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.8.0_20\bin\javaw.exe

That is it. It got fixed and Titanium Studio got started. 🙂
