FrostWire Opens Then Closes Imeadiatley!

Has anyone had this issue?

I have un-installed, used REGCRAWLER to remove all registry entries, re-installed with same results.

Something obviously has effected FrostWire because it did work the last time I used it, which was at least a week or two ago.

I have a very customized hardware array and MS System Restore pukes, like most everything else they make <g>

Any syggestions are highly appreciated.

  • Sunds like a java problem. If you have Vista clean-install the latest version .. If XP you might be better off with Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 13 from http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index_jdk5.jsp

    The XP instasllation requires removal of other versions of Java first, and removing Frostwire then installing Java ..then reinstalling Frostwire is a good idea. Not too sure about Vista

    Hopefully this was helpful ..from a Mac user :D
  • Hi,

    Thanks for the info!

    I forgot to mention I am using Win XP-SP2

    NO VISTA HERE!

    Maybe in a few years when they release the "Windows, Yeah it Really Works"
    version! <g>

    I'll let you know if the JAVA update works, though seems weird, most of my stuff like that is up to date...go figure.

  • Java update did nada.

    I have also removed and recreated the %appdata%

    It loads, opens, and I mean SCREAMS shut immediately.

    POS MS! It's too bad the software developers and MS can't REALLY work together! H_ll it could be anything! I mean if any program or update modifies a Service or DLL, well ....

    BTW does anyone know what SERVICES FrostWire must have running to operate?

    Thanks,

  • Updating java does not remove previous versions. Going on a hunch look for and remove all versions of java then install just one and stick to it.

  • Thanks for all the JAVA info, but does anyone know if "all" JAVA installations should be removed?

    SDK' & RUNTIMES?

    I don't mind trying, but this just happened out of the blue, and being a tech I try to get as much info as possible before removing & re-installing stuff, but I also know as with most Windows enviroments, it usually works unless something is really fubared.

  • SDK is only needed if you plan to do any programming any time soon. All versions means all versions. If something breaks you can always reinstall it later. If you're being cautious download the java installer before you uninstall anything but leave it saved to your desktop.
