Unable to run Inductive Visual Miner [Java-RuntimeException|

Hi All, 

With both ProM and ProM lite (in the latest versions available), I load the Event Log with no problems and everything seems to work fine. However, when I try to run the Inductive Visual Miner on the Event log I get this error message. 

       Unable to produce the requested visualization

Error Message

java.lang.RuntimeException: Graphviz-dot binary not found. 

 Please find the image attached.

  • Hi,

    one possible reason is that the dot.exe file is missing for somehow. Please try to remove the \dotBinaries7 directory, and run the ProM and the plugin again.

    Hope this helps.

    Where can I find the \dotBinaries7 directory on a Mac?

    As a result of the former, if you want ProM to recreate these files, just remove the entire .prom-graphviz folder.

    Hi Frank,

    You can find the latest dot binaries as used by ProM (including the Inductive Visual Miner) in the folder <java.io.tmpdir>/.prom-graphviz. If java.io.tmpdir is not explicitly set, it will have a default value, like /tmp. However, different systems may return different folders, so it is hard to say which folder it is exactly in.

    You can set java.io.tmpdir to some folder (like /tmp) by adding the following snippet to the line that starts the ProM VM:
    -Djava.io.tmpdir=/tmp
    Then you know that the dot binaries are in the/tmp/.prom-graphviz folder.

    Note that ProM will copy the files into that folder when it detects that these files are not there yet.

    Kind regards,
    Eric.
