Yes it is (see attached pic) - I clicked on "Change program" and reselected Web Start Launcher in case that made a difference but it didn't.

However.. I do notice some movement of icons on the bottom LH of my screen, where all active programs are, as if something is opening/closing v quickly?

By the way, just tried it on another win7 machine here, also does not work..

I'll guess it is the latest java update icw Win7 ?

Seems to be a tricky problem , i still run old Vista, have disabled any updates, except virus scan and so on...

It is only a suggestion - that newer update's caused the problem ?

Good luck (Poco)
Could you try to open a command terminal and start Java Webstart by hand? You need to type:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javaws.exe
    <Path to your browsers downloads>\NMEAproxy.jnlp

The above all in one line, followed by <Enter>. You can locate the NMEAproxy.jnlp by looking into your browsers just downloaded files.

It would be interesting to see if there is any error output in the command window or if it starts like this.

Maybe you can also enable Java Console to check if there are further messages. This is done as described here:

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.

Eddie, sorry, not quite sure what I am to type at the command prompt?

When it opens it is at:


and I don't know how to get to program files and... I type the word "verbose" in the middle?

I am obviously typing it wrong.. here is a pic of my command screen :-(

Ok, openend the logging for java, and basically nothing happens :)
when i open another java page, it's a data stream, but on this app it does not react..

I would aspect it would ask for the digital sign, but apperantly it does only download the NMEA app, but after that it the route stops.

The CL command also does basically nothing.. :)

again, i tried it on a very clean win7/java7.07 machine ( from the miss ) and also there a complete no go.

Hmm, interesting, the java console stops after hitting the NMEA app..i see in the processtable that javaws is starting, but it stops 4 seconds later

ok, did a clean install of win 7 ( mainly to clean a lot of other stuff ) but still a no go..

Hi Henk,
stop to fiddle with your VM's. It's race time. I still did not see any COM-Ports. So no GPS-data in BWR. Take a Genever and try to beat me !

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.
