 Post subject: Trouble with windows 7
PostPosted: Sun Mar 06, 2011 9:28 am 
Hello

I'm having trouble with tokentool on windows 7 (I'm using windows 7 starter on a new dell netbook).

Downloaded tokentool along with the newest java.
Reinstalled java.
Restarted the PC alot of times in the process.

Any chance of having it working?

Works 100% for me on Win7.

You haven't said what you are trying or what you see when you try it.

Sounds like your Java install is broken; it probably didn't update the PATH correctly.

Search the forum for Phergus' post regarding how to fix this.

Open what? There isn't a file called "it" in the TokenTool zip distribution.

After you download the TokenTool zip file and extract it you should have one .jar file and a folder called lib. You don't care about lib except that it is there and has files in it.

The .jar file should be called tokentool-1.0.b28.jar and should display a little icon of the Sun/Oracle Java logo.

If it doesn't your Java install is bad. Uninstall all versions of Java. Reboot. Then reinstall the 32-bit version of Java. Try again.

I'm having a similar problem. Files have extracted as Phergus describes, I double click the sun/java icon, I see a flash of script appear (way too quick to see what it is) then nothing. I've reinstalled java twice now but still nothing... any ideas. Maptool works fine.

open up a cmd prompt, and run the .jar file from there.
start-->in search box type:
Quote:
cmd

goto the install directory (use
Quote:
dir
and
Quote:
cd <dir name>
to get there)
when your in the directory type:
Quote:
tokentool-1.0.b28.jar

this time you'll see what is says. post the error message here.

edit: if you want to use copy paste, e.g. cd <paste the whole directory path> you can do that in the command prompt with a right mouse click and then click paste.

Well... given that it appears you are starting this from a command line, you did it wrong. You can't directly start a java program from the command line like that when it resides in a jar file. You MUST call it with the jave executable name, followed by -jar (to tell the java executable that you are starting from a jar file), followed by the jar file name, so, starting from a bar command prompt:


Code:
cd "C:\Program Files\MapTools\Tokentool"
java -jar tokentool-1.0.b28.jar

I save all my Campaign Files to DropBox. Not only can I access a campaign file from pretty much any OS that will run Maptool(Win,OSX, linux), but each file is versioned, so if something goes crazy wild, I can always roll back to a previous version of the same file.

Get your Dropbox 2GB via my referral link, and as a bonus, I get an extra 250 MB of space. Even if you don't don't use my link, I still enthusiastically recommend Dropbox..
