    Default java update killed me!

    Did a java update. Now the .jar files won't run. I get an App error from java. "Unable to launch the application."

    Details: CouldNotLoadArgumentException[ Could not load file/URL specified: C:\\Users\\[myname]\\AppData\\Local\\Temp\\javaws9]
    at com.sun.javaws.Main.launchApp(Unknown Source)
    at com.sun.javaws.Main.continueInSecureThread(Unknown Source)
    at com.sun.javaws.Main$1.run(Unknown Source)
    at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

    Further Details:

    java.io.IOException: File too large
    at com.sun.javaws.jnl.LaunchDescFactory.buildDescript or(Unknown Source)
    at com.sun.javaws.Main.launchApp(Unknown Source)
    at com.sun.javaws.Main.continueInSecureThread(Unknown Source)
    at com.sun.javaws.Main$1.run(Unknown Source)
    at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

    It will run the .exe version. I did an uninstall and reinstall of both the .jar, and of java. No bueno. Anyone got some help for me here?

    Seems this is a bug that several people have run into with various apps. FYI, I'm running a Dell w/Win7 Professional. And this is java 7. Update 4

    OK, solution found. Seems that it needs a different thing to fire.

    the command is java - jar and the jar file. But for this program, it wouldn't take that no matter what i did. Somehow after the update, it associated it incorrectly.

    Made this change:

    go to properties of the jar
    click change
    goto browse
    go to java directory
    open jre7 and then open bin
    choose javaw.exe
    click ok
    click ok again

    IF I got all those clicks down correctly, that'll do it. So if anyone else has this problem, there you go.

    An easier way is to grab jarfix from here http://johann.loefflmann.net/en/soft...fix/index.html
