codamedia Posted January 10, 2021 Share Posted January 10, 2021 This post is intended to assist those that still require the aging Variax Workbench (original) on their Windows 10 machine in order to edit their first generation Variax guitars. Please note: You still need a variax interface or supporting device (XT Live, X3 Live, X3 Pro, HD500, HD Pro) in order to connect your Variax to the computer. The current installers on their own will throw errors or simply won't work... but it all has to do with the JAVA pointers in the installation. They simply don't "point" to the right locations anymore. Download an older 32 bit JAVA installation.... Visit this site... (note. This may change in time, don't count on it being here forever) https://www.oracle.com/ca-en/java/technologies/oracle-java-archive-downloads.html Click on the JAVA SE 6 link (you can try something higher if you want, but I know this one works which is why I mention it) Navigate to the "Windows x86" package and download it. Install this package Download 'Variax Workbench" from the Line 6 download area. Choose "Variax Workbench" from the SOFTWARE dropdown Choose "Windows 7" from the OS dropdown Click GO Now download version 1.75 for Windows Install the software, but uncheck the option to install JAVA Variax Workbench should now load.... and hopefully see your guitar if it is connected through a supporting device. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
