Description Jeffrey Rubinoff 2011-09-19 17:55:36 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201109190600)
Operating System = Windows Vista version 6.0 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.6.0_27
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 20.2-b06

I have JavaFX SDK and Runtime installed in the default locations, C:/Program Files/Oracle. When I create a JavaFX Application for the first time, NetBeans does not autocreate a Java platform. Worse, when I create a Java Platform manually and indicate the paths to JavaFX SDK and Runtime, NetBeans insists that the platform is invalid.
When I try this on the 201109140600 build, it works correctly.

I can confirm there are some trouble with setting up JFX platform manually. I noticed it yesterday while I was making the list of not working autodetection combinations (Issue 202315). Some combinations that are valid, and was working in previous builds after manual setup, are marked as invalid and can't be used now. The behavior seems to be somehow dependent on the type of JDK that is used to run NetBeans. I'm testing all possible scenarios now and will send results asap.
Comment 2 Anton Chechel 2011-09-20 13:24:11 UTC
I can reproduce it. I confirm there is a bug in yesterday's build (201109190600). Determination of compatibility of architecture (32b vs 64b) of currently running VM with given JavaFX Runtime is not working properly. So user is not able to create new JavaFX enabled platform no matter what. The same situation with platform autocreation.

Increasing priority to P1.
