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 !
Regards Poco

Sinbad Braves the Bay of Bengal 2023
“Sinbad, you sorry sailor, why have you not told me of this great sea, this giant bay, stretching hundreds of thousands of qasbah east of Al-Hindi to fabled lands where tea and rice and rubber is abundant?” and Sinbad replied “Ahh, umm, shall I go have a look. May I take the Judel Vrolijk 62 again, it’s going to be a long voyage, perhaps a million and one half qasbah (c 3000nm)? I’ll start in Chittagong and follow the coast to the southern tip of the Hindus’ land, round Serendip, head east into the vastness of the seas, and if I’m lucky (no pun intended, oh Mighty One) I shall find land again and then head north and see where I end up”. “Fair winds, Sinbad”, said the Sultan.

Maryland to Alaska 2023
Welcome to this September edition of 2023 OCCH. This route was first sailed in 2020. At the time it was inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposing a half-around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska, now to be sailed in our magnificent Archer 78.
