Steve, I can't seem to get the latest BSW to run from webstart or manual install -- can it possibly be that I have the old version still installed?

I get as far as the "java" logo and that's it. Gonna go through the basics like restarting my machine, etc, and I'll probably just switch to my laptop as I'm off traveling as of this morning.

It does seem like occasionally if there's an update you have to try the web start version multiple times before it launches. I've not really any idea what its happening. uninstalling the old one first can help.

I'll take a look at the manual install. What operation system are you running?

I'm on Windows 7 64 bit. Unfortunately, I won't be in front of that machine again for a week... when I am, I'll get the console up and see what I can do about debugging.

I haven't heard any problems concerning the latest release candidate so I'm releasing the 1.0 version of Book Scan Wizard.

All that's changed since the first release candidate is a few minor bug fixes.

Webstart version:

http://bookscanwizard.sourceforge.net/run

Manual install:

I'm also having a problem getting the installation to work from the web start link. I get an "application error" that displays two tabs in the "details." Under the "exception" tab, it states:

JNLParseException[ Could not parse launch file. Error at line 0.]

under the the "wrapped exception" tab, it states:

With all the "unkown source" language, does this mean I've got some sort of security/firewall issue?

Those errors mean that your Java Web Start launcher is brokeded. I ran it, and it worked.

Can you post what the red box says on this website? It tells you your Java version: http://javatester.org/version.html.

As for the file, open up Notepad and paste in this code:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<jnlp codebase="http://bookscanwizard.sourceforge.net/run" href="bsw.jnlp" spec="1.0+">
    <information>
        <title>Book Scan Wizard</title>
        <vendor>Steve Devore</vendor>
        <homepage href="http://bookscanwizard.sourceforge.net"/>
        <description>Book Scan Wizard</description>
        <description kind="short">Book Scan Wizard</description>
        <association extensions="bsw" mime-type="application-x/bsw-file"/>
        <shortcut online="false">
          <desktop/>
          <menu submenu="Book Scan Wizard"/>
        </shortcut>
        <offline-allowed/>

    <icon href="bsw.png" kind="default"/>
</information>
<update check="timeout" policy="prompt-update"/>
<security>
<all-permissions/>
</security>
    <resources>
<j2se java-vm-args="-Xmx1024M" version="1.6+"/>
<jar href="BookScanWizard.jar" main="true"/>
<extension href="http://download.java.net/media/jai/webstart/release/jai-1.1.3-latest.jnlp" name="" version=""/>
<extension href="http://download.java.net/media/jai-imageio/webstart/release/jai-imageio-1.1.jnlp" name="" version=""/>
</resources>
    <application-desc main-class="net.sourceforge.bookscanwizard.BSW">

    </application-desc>
</jnlp>
Then, press CTRL + S, and save it with this exact name (with the quotation marks too):

Code: Select all

"bsw.jnlp"
Now, try running that file.

Also, followed your instructions above and got the same error message when running the file. Do I need to re-install java?

Exact same version as I have. What platform are you running BSW on?
