Open the official Java console -- that one is just for Jmol. Look for a long list of error report. It's opened using an icon on your Windows main toolbar, perhaps off it on a submenu that also has Control Panel. Or you can go into Control Panel and start the Java control suite and tell it to open that console when pages are loaded.

No, and it's not slow, it's frozen. I've let it sit there for 5+ minutes. I suspect this is a java issue, not a jmol one. While googling I've seen old reports of similar behavior in other programs and browsers -- but those were old versions of Java and that doesn't explain why this just started happening. It's not a huge deal because I script most things, so "load" suffices. Just weird.

Thanks,
James

do you have hundreds of files in that directory? Sometimes that can slow it down.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for the suggestion. I do have a VPN set up, but no mapped drives, so I looked into that a little but it did not seem to be involved.

One other observation: The "load" command works from the console. Is the "open" button in the GUI doing something different than "load"? I guess it is, because even if a successful "open" results in a "load" command in the end, "open" has the additional process of browsing to the desired file, and since the file browser never comes up, it's not getting to the load command.

I have had general delays with Windows 8 when I had previously had a network file directory mapped, closed my computer, then opened it and tried to look at a menu  -- with Java or otherwise. It was very very slow to connect, presumably because it was repeatedly trying to connect with a no longer connected VPN. Just a thought.
