This morning everything worked fine, but ever since this afternoon I get the notice 'Error invoking method. Failed to launch JVM' and everything just shuts down without anything

    Re-install TomTom Home and Java. JVM is shortly for Java Virtual Machine.

    I re-installed TomTom Home, and also Java but I still get the same pop-up...

    I have TomTom HOME 2.20.12.112 and Java 8 Update 261, if this helps at all?

    I really don't understand, it worked perfectly for one year and now this. I don't even know if there was an update for either TomTom or Java that caused this.

    Maybe there was an update to the Java? Try installing the previous version of Java, it may help.

    Unfortunately, that also did not work... Do you think it is a bug within TomTom Home?

    If you use Windows, maybe thats a bug within the OS. Microsoft sometimes does some nasty things.

    I am using Windows 10 Home Single Language Pack on a Casper Nirvana i7. I hope that helps.

    Hmm, I did have a Windows-update recently yes. Bloody hell...

    Oh now we know. That's coming from Windows. No need to worry, get the next update and it should get fixed.

    Ok, thank you. I will let you know when it works again.

    (I tried it on an old laptop, and it works on that one)
