Paper Machine add-on does not create Java Virtual Machine

When starting Paper Machine for the first time the Java Virtual Machine Launcher answers with the error message:
Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

I updated Java yesterday, use ZSA latest version, on Windows 7.
Where is the culprit ?

  • I have the same problem. I am using Windows 10. Found suggestion on other forums to create an environmental variable '_JAVA_OPTIONS' and set the variable value to '-Xmx256M'. This did not help. Does anyone have this working?
  • (Just to say that it's not like no one is reading this, I just don't have anything for you. PaperMachine is not actively maintained, so it's possible it just doesn't work, anymore unfortunately. I'm pretty sure it'll stop working in Zotero 5.0 anyway)
  • I don't know about Zotero 5.0 support, but (the last time I looked) Paper Machines worked with Java ver. 6, but not with more recent releases.
