I've got a problem with WITP tracker 1.10.
In a previous game (in 2019), I could launch WITP Tracker without any problem.
I started a new PBEM, and when I try to launch WITP Tracker I've got the following error message :

pwsdll7.dll : Can't load IA 32-bits .dll on a AMD 64-bits platform

Then the exception stack....

does it mean that my java executable only accepts 64-bits libraries ?
Can anyone help me ? Because a PBEM without WITP tracker is quite hard to manage...
Thanx in advance !

You need to download and install the 32-bit Java.

I installed a 32bits java executable (in a directory different from the default one), I modified the WITPtracker script to executed specifically this 32bits executable, and it works fine !
Thank you for the answer !

I thought I read this program worked with Java 8 somewhere. Finding the proper version of Java 6 on Oracles site looks to be difficult. Lots of DL and then Oracle demand a login.

It should work with JRE 7 or 8 now.
I have JRE8 build 261 on my computer right now.

Don't use it much but asked track what my ASW coverage having remembered your map.

I've found anomalies with the map. Not sure if they have always been there or are a consequnce of various patches to game/tracker.

When displaying search arcs:-
ASW patrols only show up if naval patrols are also set (random of defined) for the group.
Defined naval arcs show even if the group search level is zero. If you rest to random then set to zero they do not show.

In the pic there are three FP group in Guam, Saipan and Pagan.
Guam has both naval and ASW set to random. Both displayed
Saipan has just ASW set to random with naval search arc clear and set to zero. None displayed
Pagan has ASW arcs set to random with naval arc set to define arc (10-20) but level set to zero. Only naval displayed.

ASW left/Naval right

I am having the same problem. How did you modify WITPtracker to do that?

Put your 32 bit java in some place other than the default one and then point tracker directly to it, like this:

"c:\nomads 32 bit java\installation\bin\java.exe" -Xms768m -Xmx768m -jar "WitPTracker.jar"
pause

What might I be doing wrong?
Tried to follow the directions on the witptracker website.

When I run the either of the .bat files, it thinks for awhile, and then a pop-up window comes up and says:
______________________________________________

Unable to install Java
There are errors in the following switches:
"-Xms384m";"-Xmx512m";"-jar""WitPtracker.jar";"nomap";.

Check that the commands are valid and try again.

__________________________________________

I tried it with just copying the java.exe file into the tracker folder and with the formal java install, both give me the same error.

It says that you do not have Java installed. You have to install the 32 bit version and use it.

thank you for the painfully obvious advice because:

I tried following the websites advice of not formally installing Java (yes 32 bit), and that didn't work so I did do the formal install and it still didn't work.

The silly thing I did was copying the Java setup exe file into the tracker folder, not the Java app itself.

I just needed that little nudge!
It works now!

In the folder, where you have installed Tracker, should be a File called "WitPTracker.bat". Execute this and Tracker should start.
Be aware that you need Java 32-bit to be able to launch the Tracker.

edit:
In Regards to what it does, it tracks basically everything that is going on in your game.
The Tracker is especially useful for Japanese Industry, as you get your totals in one screen, without the need to get the numbers out of the game and add them up yourself.
For Example: You want to lookup how many engines of a specific types are currently produced or stocked and how many you are using for the production of Aircraft.
In the game without Tracker, you would need to go into the industry menu, add all Factories together that produce the engine, lookup which of your Aircraft are using this engine and when calculate the totals yourself.
With Tracker you get a Table for all available Engines and see in one screen how much you produce and how many of them are used during Aircraft Production and also by which Aircraft respectively.
And it also keeps track of this Information on a turn-by-turn basis, so you always have the most recent data.

This is just one Case where Tracker can be useful, it has also a lot of different information, so I would encourage you to explore a bit.

Thanks I'm really keen to use it -

I've double clicked on the bat file I get an error message telling me that cant load a 32bit .dll on a 64 bit platform.

For what its worth I'm running Windows 10.

I guess I'm going to have to do some searching around the forum to see how to make it work, but thanks for getting me a step further.

Cheers

Hano

One more time, you must download the 32-bit Java and use it , not the 64-bit Java.

Any chance on an updated version?

Would like to see in the Devices Pool History to show a running turn column for Need by turn. Shows the progress you are making over time.

Well, the error message:

Error: could not open `D:\Matrix Games\WitPTracker AE Release 1.10\Java\lib\i386\jvm.cfg'

Says it can not find a file. Is it there? Did you put the lib subdirectory in with Java?

You are right, I am a blockhead. I had the file in the wrong folder. I fixed it and now I am getting the following error:

For those out of memory errors:

For whatever reason it seems that Windows gets its memory allocation screwed up. Try closing everything and restarting your computer.

If that doesn't fix it, then try shutting down your computer completely, pulling the power cable and pressing the start button for about 10 seconds.
Restart and try again. Like I said, I don't know what happens but these have always fixed the problem for me. I have something like 450 turns loaded.


As a last resort, try and find what is running in the background that might be a problem. At least one person found dropbox was running in the background
and messing up the memory manager.

Also I have found the following memory settings work the best: ( do not copy and paste )

"c:\32 bit java\installation\bin\java.exe" -Xms768m -Xmx768m -jar "WitPTracker.jar"
pause

For those who want to know why:
1. The -Xms768m sets the initial memory allocation to 768MB
2. The -Xmx768m set the maximum memory allocation to 768MB

I think that by setting them both to 768MB that Java allocates enough memory for the entire operation at the start and there should be less memory manager allocation problems.

Hi all, does anybody has a working link for a working Java version for the tracker ?
On oracle everything seems hidden, or forbidden, or you have to have a professional account ?

I searched on Java download and got the main download page. https://www.java.com/en/download/

Near the bottom of the page is a link See all Java downloads select that

I select the Windows offline version.

I'm about a year into a campaign and Tracker just quit on me. It just hangs there at the command prompt, no error message. Any ideas?

I'm trying to setup and use tracker for the first time and I am having some problems.
I configured tracker to use the correct save file and game setup.
I downloaded java 6 and put it into a separate file and then pointed tracker to its location. when I run tracker from the batch file I get the following
