Java Exception


New member
I normally use a Mac, but just acquired a ThinkPad running Windows 11. I installed Java, and downloaded the Mafia jar. I can run the jar and get the login, but when I enter my username and password, Mafia displays "Could not acquire file lock for gogsmack:" --gogsmack is my username. How can I get mafia to run successfully?

You are *probably* trying to run it from some protected location (like "\Program Files" or "\Windows" - I don't know the full list). Try making a new folder somewhere aways from system locations, copying the jar there, and running it from there?
