After installing WebScarab on Windows 2003 Server /
English i get two shortcuts in the start menu WebScarab
and Uninstaller. Both shortcuts start with
"C:\WINDOWS\java -jar ....". So everytime i try to
start WebScarab i fail and a new explorer windows opens
with destination "C:\WINDOWS\java\", because this is an
folder and not an executeable file !!! Maybe use
%JAVA_HOME% in future when creating this link???

    This is supposed to be handled automatically by the
    installer program.

    I'll have a look see what is going wrong, but it IS working
    for me (Windows XP, JDK 1.5), gives me a shortcut of
    C:\Windows\System32\java.exe, which works.

    Where is your java executable installed?
