    Freemind appears to load and run fine, but I can't save, save as, or export any maps that I create.

    I'm running the following JRE version:
    java version "1.6.0_26"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.1-b02, mixed mode)

    And I've added "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin" to both my JAVA_HOME and PATH.

    When I launch freemind.bat I get the following output:

    C:\Program Files\FreeMind>freemind.bat
    Checking Java Version…

    STDOUT: User patterns file C:\Users\Tony\.freemind\patterns.xml not found.
    STDOUT: User patterns file C:\Users\Tony\.freemind\patterns.xml not found.

    And then when I click File -> Save As I get the following:
