#287 App won't start but Java process visible in Task Manager

FreeMind_0.8.0
open
nobody
Windows (184)

No

HOW TO REPRODUCE:
1. When app is started (via Start Menu, d-clicking
EXE directly, or d-clicking an associated ".mm"
file), nothing appears to happen.
2. In the Task Manager, you can see the "javaw.exe"
process start.
3. Multiple attempts to execute launch app result in
multiple "javaw.exe" processes.

ENVIRONMENT (MINE):
Fresh install of FreeMind 0.8.0, running on Java
Runtime Environment 5.0.7. Tried several JREs,
uninstalls, reinstalls, etc.

WORKAROUND:
Execute "freemind.jar" directly. This won't allow
associated ".mm" files to open the app automatically
however.

MORE INFO:
See...
http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?
thread_id=1522035&forum_id=22102
...for discussion amongst others that are having this
problem. It appears to be known problem amongst some
users, but hasn't been reported previously as far as
I can see - it cost me several hours of stuffing
around before I found others were having same problem
(hence this bug report).

SUGGESTED PRIORITY:
#1! If new users can't run the software, they won't
bother to persevere & so throw it out. I only
continued because I had to (my boss uses it & sent me
a mindmap to expand upon). I'm surprised noone has
logged this before (don't think you can count the
MacOS & Debian posts...).

Thanks!

    I'm getting similar behavior except the javaw.exe doesn't
    show up in the task manager. I tried from the start menu
    and desktop shortcuts. They appear to be pointing to an
    exe file. I tried launching the Freemind.exe file
    directly that did nothing (which is consistent). There was
    also a Freemind.bat file in the same directory. This
    launches the program successfully however there is no file
    association for .mm file extension.
