Starts from the .jar, but not from the .exe

  • Alberto Salmerón


    I just installed RSSOwl 1.2 in WindowsXP, but if I run it from the start menu (or the .exe directly) it fails with the following message: "Could not launch RSSOwl. Please refer to INSTALL.TXT". However, I can launch it directly from the .jar. Do you know what this could be?

    I'm using Java 1.5.0_05, and have the PATH and JAVA_HOME env variables set.

    Thanks for this great piece of software!

      What is the value of JAVA_HOME looking like? Can you type "javaw" in your console and it shows java?

        Oops! When I updated from 1.5.0_04 I forgot to change JAVA_HOME. Thanks!
