View Full Version : Trouble loading

06-15-2007, 08:23 AM
So last night I am messing with Java trying to get IRC chat working for another game I play and now my SB loader wont open. If I go to the start.exe file it opens fine. I right clicked on the desktop SB logo to change the .exe to .jar and it wont let me. I even removed smallball and re-downloaded it. Still get the same result. Anyone have any ideas what I can try to get the normal loader to work properly.
Thanks in advance.

You said you were messing with java, so lets try starting there.

Thanks Wookie. I am at work now. I will give it a go when I get home. Kinda weird being able to open it from the start.jar file and not the desktop icon huh? You would think the desktop gets it from the start.jar file. I will post later and let you know what I find.

jrew.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Thats what I get every time. Even after I re- downloaded it. Any thoughts?

Try uninstalling your java and start over with a fresh download.

I have had that happen before a couple times.
I just removed SmallBall, and Java.
Remove the SB directory too. C:\My Games (or whatever drive you have it on)

I then downloaded the SB Java VM version, and installed it.
Then reinstalled Java.

Ok, let me try it.

For the record.........
You have to remove the whole text in the target line, and then add the start.jar in that line.
If you try to remove exe and add start.jar like I did for two days you wont get anywhere.

Thanks for all of your help Wookie.
