## Configuring the Java path in the .ini file from the Designer repository

How to configure a custom JVM path in the .ini file (semarchy-xdi-designer-windows.ini, for example under Windows OS)  to specify the JVM to be used to start the Designer?

We suggest that you make first a backup of the file, as it is very sensible  and easily "breakable" (because of extra spaces or line breaks).
If you do not have any backup, but you need to recover a functional version of this file, you can still find the original file in the zip archive of the designer.

The JVM path can be specified in the .ini configuration file (which is located in the Designer's directory), using the following argument (for example) :

```-vm
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-11.0.16.1\bin```

Important:

• It must be added at the beginning of the file, otherwise it will not work
• The line break after -vm is also necessary, without any space character
