I have an issue with creating database connections in Spoon (pdi-ce-188.8.131.52-28) on Windows 10.
The error I receive is: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Argument not valid
Then subsequently: General error in dialog
The trace from the first error is attached.
I saw a similar error posted here however I am using Java 8 when the solution was to downgrade from 9 to 8.
I've tried a two different variants of JRE 8 and also re-downloaded pdi-ce-184.108.40.206-28 but the same issue persists.
I am using PENTAHO_JAVA_HOME to force the JRE and checked the spoon console to ensure it had the correct JRE.
Can you please provide guidance on what I should do next to try and resolve this?
