Do not update to Java 6 update 22. Updating to this version of Java causes PersonalBrain to fail to start on some computers. On others, it will cause Notes on Thoughts to fail to load.

As of now, the solution is to roll back to the previous release of Java - 1.6 udpate 21. This older, stable version of Java can be found at:

http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se/6u21/index.html

Make sure to uninstall update 22 prior to installing update 21.

At this point, the errors look like they are due to problems introduced by the changes in Java 6 update 22. We will post more information as we learn more.

PersonalBrain 6.0.5.1 is up now and fixes this problem and works properly with Java 6 update 22.

Does this address the "java.lang.NullPointerException" that is preventing PB6 from opening?

Appreciate your declaring a solution. How about a LINK to the FIX?!

There is a link to the download page on the bottom of the forum. Also, if you have checked the Check for major program updates automatically box in Options > Preferences you should have automatically received notification with a link when starting PB.
