NullPointerException with Bio-Formats

bio-formats
imagej

#1

I installed the new distribution from scratch and updated Java 8. I proceeded by uninstalling as suggested. I receive the following error. Any advice appreciated.

(Fiji Is Just) ImageJ 2.0.0-rc-66/1.52b; Java 1.8.0_172 [64-bit]; Windows 10 10.0; 55MB of 6000MB (<1%)

Fiji and Bioformats - conflicting jars

Hi @Matias_Andina, and welcome to the forum!

I moved your post to a new topic, because the one you replied to was marked as solved, and the error you see seems to be different from what’s reported there.

Could you please be more specific in describing what you did when you got this error? Were you trying to open a file? Which format? Which options did you select in the import dialog (in particular, was Stitch tiles checked)?

Also, which update sites (apart from ImageJ, Fiji and Java-8) are active on your installation?

Somehow, it got fixed alone (I guess rebooting the computer helped?)
