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.
