I feel I need to defend java somewhat here.Just as Rein pointed out pskmail would have stayed a happy linux only project using perl and gtk if it wasn't for java. While I don't think that would have been a negative thing at all there was some serious pressure to make it work on window$. Now, java has changed the industry and only yesterday I noticed a certain linux and java based phone OS has a 75% market share:
But, of course we need to test more and also make the installer perfect and show a splash screen with more info and... What I mean is there is nothing wrong with java, it's just that we need more hands involved in the development and testing.

@IAn, 'Why people still persist with Windows is beyond me'. Unfortunately we had to use java to enable people to use window$. @Drew, windows wants to use javaw.exe... See FAQ Windows7 pretends it cannot find javaw.exe <http://pskmail.wikispaces.com/FAQ+Windows7+pretends+it+cannot+find+javaw.exe> Rein PA0R Why people persist with java is beyond me :-( Try an older version of the client that uses fldigi. After much mucking around, I have found a combination that works for me.
