Uncaught exception occured in Thread[#33,JavaFX Appliaction Thread,5,main]

Hi dear,
I am using Jabref 5.12 on Windows 10.
Since yesterday I cannot with Jabref, because of following exception error:
Uncaught exception occured in Thread[#33,JavaFX Appliaction Thread,5,main]

Is there any solution for that problem?

Best regards
Jan

Dear all,

I have the same problem. I have updated the Jabref Version on 5.13 but the error is still there.

Thank you for helping us.

@Laura Can you please copy the whole exception text of the log because in your screenshot the root cause is unfortunately not visible?

@Jan_Seitz Can you also, please post the whole log?

You can also find the log files on disk Windows | v5 | JabRef

Hey Christoph,

thank you for your quick response!

Here is the full error code:

Thanks a lot! Someone else recently had the same issue and running the application as Administrator apparently solved it.

Unfortunately, this seems to be coming directly from Java :frowning:

You could also try the version from here https://builds.jabref.org/jdk-ea/ which cotnains some updated java component (For Windows, use the windows portable or the MSI installer)

Hi Christoph,
thank you for your help!
I was also trying to the version with the updated java component (MSI installer).
But I still get some error Message. This I can find in the log file:

And I also get an error message in the new 5.13 Version of Jabref.

Can you try running as Administrator?
Edit: Would be nice if you could further comment under Uncaught exception occurred in Thread[#53,JavaFX Application Thread,5,main] · Issue #11151 · JabRef/jabref · GitHub
Makes it easier for us to have the issue in a single place

I am a MacOS user (14.4.1) and also have constant crashes of JavaFX.
An example is attached. This happened via drag and drop of a file.

But it also happens in between and without warning.

Is there a solution or update? Unfortunately, the developer version doesn’t work for me at all.

This is unfortunately a different issue related to drag and drop; however, I can reproduce it

I created an issue Drag and Drop of a file under macOS 14.4.1 gives an exception: Flush is forbidden from target · Issue #11214 · JabRef/jabref · GitHub

Regarding the development version. Start JabRef. A warning dialog will occur.

The dev version is not notarized, so you have to go to system settings -.> data protection and security →
Scroll down under security → See JabRef there, click allow and so on.

Edit// If you drag the PDF on the entry, editor, it works
