I grabbed the nixnote.jar from the .deb file and tossed it in the folder - works now!
The only problem I'm having now is that I can't sync. I installed the 0.9.8 win32 openssl (despite the fact that I'm running win64) from http://slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html
and installed it, but it's not working. Should I have installed it to a particular place? I went with the default of C:\OpenSSL.
It asked me whether to copy OpenSSL DLLs to "the Windows system directory" or "the OpenSSL binaries (/bin) directory" (on windows??). I went with the Windows system directory.
