Dear Sirs,
I successfully install iReport Designer 5.6 and cannot open it when I double-click on the icon?

I tried to reboot without success. Is there any conflict between the latest version of Java and this version of iReport?

O-P - I can't answer that I'm afraid - you'll need other experts. My comment was just a knee-jerk 'in case'. (But since I made the comment I looked around the 'net a bit, and there may be some issues if you are using Java 8 - although that was already some time back).

I resolved it by installing jdk1.7 and adding its path to the file iReport.conf
#jdkhome="/path/to/jdk"
jdkhome="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_79"
