[jsword-devel] Fwd: Desktop won't open

    I need a bit more information. I downloaded and unzipped last 
night's bin (14 Sep 2005) to c: and double clicked on the jsword.bat 
file. It worked for me. This may be a case where the nightly was broken 
for a few days.
    I am wondering what the date of your download is? Which version of 
Java is being used? (You can see this in the command window that is 
opened when you run the bat file.) Do you have the same problem with the 
14 Sep bin.zip?
