SmartDashboard crashes when set to C++


I am trying to use the SmartDashboard for C++, but whenever I set it to any option in the driverstation, besides default, it closes and doesn’t come up again. Even if I try restarting the driverstation, and the whole computer. It comes up again if I set it to default, but I can’t use any C++ functions.

It has this problem on another team member’s laptop too, but works on a different one. I’ve searched this forum and Google and haven’t found a solution. Any ideas?

Go to C:/users/<insert your user here>/wpilib/tools
Shift right click and select “Open Command Window here”
Run the C++ dashboard with the command: java -jar smartdashboard.jar
Post the output here. It might give you a useful stack trace.
