    Default PDI 6.0 isn't running

    Hi, I downloaded pdi-ce-6.0.1.0-386.zip hoping to upgrade to PDI 6.0
    my previous install was from pdi-ce-5.2.0.0-209.zip. it works fine

    My machine is Windows 7 pro 64 bit. Java is 64 bit
    java version "1.8.0_65"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_65-b17)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.65-b01, mixed mode)

    Spoon.bat doesn't return an error, but doesn't launch the UI
    when I change javaw to java with verbose I see this error:
    java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to load image with name [ui/images/kettle_splash.svg]
    see attached log.txt for the full error output.

    from searching that I've done so far it seems that this error is encountered by people trying to launch PDI from Eclipse, but I'm not doing that. In fact I removed Eclipse from my machine (just in case). How can I make 6.0 work?

    The pdi-ce-6.0.0[...]/ui/images/ directory does not contain any image files (like what you might use for a custom splash screen). Try putting an svg image in there and see if it loads it (there are several in the documents folder if you need one).

    hmm, that doesn't really explain why 5.22 works. That svg file isn't present in 5.22 image dir either. Also, for some reason it's now asking for a connection to Impala. I wonder if it's a different symptom of the same problem ...

    thank you for trying. I finally figured it out. I was copying 6.0 files over the existing 5.22 files. Apparently that's not a good idea.
