Fiji 3D Viewer : Error Message

I keep on receiving this message in a Console window when I try to run the 3D Viewer in Fiji (I’ve downloaded the latest Java):

Reading header
Finding image offsets
version = 1.5
Exception occurred in RenderingErrorListener:
java.lang.RuntimeException
at ij3d.ImageWindow3D$ErrorListener.errorOccurred(ImageWindow3D.java:310)

at javax.media.j3d.NotificationThread.processNotifications(NotificationThread.java:90)
at javax.media.j3d.NotificationThread.run(NotificationThread.java:107)

I’m not sure what to do. My 3D Viewer Plugin works on another computer with the files I want to open. Any thoughts?

Maybe you are using Fiji with Java 8, but without the Java-8 update site enabled?

If so, try enabling the Java-8 update site (after you are certain you are using Java 8). Or download a fresh copy of Fiji.

Alternately, you can use the latest Java-6 compatible version of Fiji as explained here:
