I will check that link out and see what I can find. I also want to thank you all for trying to help me. This issue is very odd and I have no issues at all when running MapTool on my Alienware M15X laptop.
well, in this case, the issue is not with maptool but with your java install, that for some obscure reason is not working. Figuring out why is really diving into forums that deal with that topic and beyond the scope of this forum although if the knowledge is here, we gladly share!
