#1 Windows: No dialogs open based on path to jars

I unzipped the 1.0a1 to the Desktop in Windows XP.
Then when I attempted to run the FlickrBackup.jar, it
launched Firefox to get me Flickr authenticated, but
nothing else ever happened. Process explorer showed
java was running with the proper files open, but no
dialogs appeared.

I moved the folder to "C:\", and launched it, and it
worked properly. My guess would be that it didn't like
the space in the path.

    Where did you have the Flickr Backup folder? I run it from
    my desktop all the time (i.e. C:\"Documents and
    Settings"\me\Desktop which has a space in it). Let me know.
    Also, if you have a change, can you please try to run it
    from the command line if you can reproduce it and paste any
    errors you see in this bug?

    cd <path_to_dir>\FlickrBackup
    java -jar FlickrBackup.jar

    Thanks!
    Andrew

    Can you see if this is fixed now that there is a exe file?
