Yes, of course it runs on 1.8. It's java 9... This was more a report ;)

For those that want to use apk-signer-1.8.5.jar on a java 9, download the zip, extract it, place the batch file in the same folder with jar-signer-1.8.5.jar and simply run it. If it fails, open the bat file with your favorite text editor and replace, on line 2, the path to your java 8 bin directory

Can't start apk-signer-1.8.5.jar since a while now.



I'm on windows 10, running on java 9.0.1 (runtime 9.0.1+11), jdk on path 1.8.0_144 (tried forcing jdk on 9, wond't change anything). Guess the jre takes over


Can you try to run it with JRE8? I'm running this version on my machine and the APK Signer works fine on my end. It could be that the apk signer is incompatible with JRE9.
