Data Mover Encrypt Password JVM error

As of PeopleTools 8.53 you might get the following error when running ENCRYPT_PASSWORD *; in data mover:

Error: Process aborted. Possibly due to JVM is not available or missing java class or empty password.

To fix you need to add %PS_HOME%\jre\bin\ to Windows your path as Java is now used as part of the encryption process.

Control Panel > System > Advanced > Environment Variables
(or search settings for Edit the System Environment Variables).

Scroll through System Variables and find PATH, and append the location of %PS_HOME%\jre\bin\ to the end e.g.


Note once you do this, you need to close and re-open data mover for it pick up the new path.
