Fellow PersonalBrainers,

Yesterday I purchased the Beta of v6. When I try to launch the program, all I get is the popup with the logo, version number and copyright information, but the program won't start (which is most unfortunate, as I need my PBrain to continue my work).

Does anyone know about this kind of problem and what can I do to fix it?

Thanks a lot for your input,

Regards,
Dan

You can first try to reinstall Sun Java, and also check that it's the most recent version for your OS. After that reinstall PB and see if that works.

Thanks, jostber. Unfortunately, now I'm having massive trouble with Java.

(I tried to reinstall JRE 6.21, but it keeps telling me the software is already installed and asks me if I want to reinstall. If I chose yes, a message pops up saying this is only allowed for products which are already installed and aborts.)

I then installed JRE 6.19, but the problem stays the same. I reinstalled PB 6.0.3.5 but it doesn't start.

Pants!

Regards,
Dan

Could you post your output.log from the PersonalBrain folder?

Here it is. Moe sent me a new editlivejava.jar as a fix for a problem with the Note editor, but that doesn't solve the problem.

As I couldn't install JRE because of the error message I now installed JDK 6.21. However, PB still does not start.

Please try 6.0.3.6. If it still happens then we will need to send you another jar for the editor again.

On installing 6036 my main brain wouldn't start, with just the animated logo processing for 10 minutes. Tried several times with the main brain but no luck. Did open a smaller brain ok. Uninstalled and reinstalled 6035 and all ok.

First time this happened.
