Hi Vic, As you installed the zipped archive it does not install the needed rxtx libs for you. Installing them is quite easy and is detailed in the manual, I'll just paste the procedure from there: Installation Instructions for RXTX jPSKmail needs a JAVA Communication API to communicate with a GPS via the serial line (RS232 or USB), that library is the rxtx package. These steps are only necessary if you intend to actually use a GPS. Windows 98/NT/2000/XP: For installing the RXTX package you will find the necessary dll and jar files within the directory where you installed jPSKmail. Installation procedure: copy rxtxSerial.dll to %JAVA_HOME%\bin, • (%JAVA_HOME% is the folder where JRE is installed on your system; e.g. c:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.6.0_15) • copy RXTXcomm.jar to %JAVA_HOME%\lib\ext Thats it. The windows installer will try to locate java, check if its possible to write there and copy the libs for you. With the zip you have to do that manually.
