Hi Robert,

Thanks for pointing me to the JSpecViewApplet.jnlp file, as an alternative to running Jmol locally. This leaves me with a couple questions:

1) Previously I was scripting operations with Jmol. For that purpose, should I still refer to Jmol.jar, and not this new file?

2) I'm not sure how to give the applet the permissions it needs. When I select File -> Open File, I get a permissions error right away (no chance to change directories to somewhere that might have the appropriate permissions). This is what I see:

----------------------------------------------------
RUNSCRIPT 
JSpecView Applet 2.1.1/SVN1485 /2014-01-24 00:35
RUNSCRIPT load ?
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied ("java.io.FilePermission" "C:\Users\admin\Documents" "read")
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied ("java.io.FilePermission" "C:\Users\admin\Documents" "read")
----------------------------------------------------

It must be taking those paths from the default in Windows because that is not where I have the JSmol files themselves, nor the files I want to open.
