Hi Henk,
no problems with NMEA-Proxy, NAVMONPC

but: my BWR does not see any GPS data.
don't know why.
"09-10 09:48: Unable to open COM2 on channel 1:
couldn't open "COM2": no such file or directory..."

Any idea ?
Regards Poco
interesting, also on a VM win 8 machine it does not work here...
Poco, your problem seems something else ?
my problem looks like a java autostart issue..

hmm, i will mess further...

Eddie says

" What I saw on my computer: The proxy does not open, but informs me that I need to install a new Java Runtime Environment from Oracle. There where security issues with jre-1.6, so firefox disables this Java Runtime. After installing Java Runtime 1.7 the proxy opens the normal way."

I am mostly using Chrome and recently Java updated itself to Java 7 but my test-opening of Brainaid's proxy is still not working so I have told him so. I tried in IE too.

Please would anyone else with a problem post more detailed info if possible?

I don't usually use this proxy, but know how to use it.

This is what I just did, I clicked on the link, input my info to Brainaid's Toolbox, click on Navigation, then on the button which downloads the file.. then I should just click on the d/l file?

When I do so, the cursor goes "eggtimer" as if it is doing something but the NMEA window doesn't open.

Is this what you are all getting? Is anyone getting anything different?

Running Java 7 Update4 (Build 1.7.0_04-b22) on Vista
Brainaids Proxy works fine. No probs.

Poco - which browser are you using please?
Just fiddled around, but on win 7 and 8 i get the error java web start launcher fails

basically it won't start ?

Win7, latest java
Poco - which browser are you using please?
Hi RC, running Chrome for SOL, other stuff with FF. But the Java-Tool does not depend/ need a Browser.

Regards Poco
Poco - thanks.. just useful for Eddie to know where it is working as he asked me earlier what browser I was using (Chrome has built-in Java I think?)

Dikkehenk - I have let brainaid know the error message you are getting (which is more than I get)!

Every piece of information might be useful!
Hi all,

I do not have windows 7 here, so can't really test... Maybe the hints on the following web site help?

Could someone with windows 7 please verify that .jnlp is correctly associated with Java Webstart?

Thanks a lot,

The sea is lovely, dark, and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to sail before I sleep, And miles to sail before I sleep.

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
