HOBO RX3000 Manager and HOBOnode viewer will not work after Java 9 Update

If you are running HOBOware version 3.7.13 and also have updated to JAVA JRE 9, there will be an issue with the RX3000 manager and the HOBO node Manager within the HOBOware program. Until Java 9 is fully supported you will not be able to run these items in HOBOware; therefore you must downgrade your Java version. There are some risks to consider before doing this.  Click here for more information.
