ForeUI won’t start. I’ve got Windows XP Pro (32 bit), and am a knowledgable Comp Sci professional.
I’ve tried installing 2.32, and older versions down to 2.25.
The loading splash screen shows up, and stays there forever. App doesn’t start. After a few minutes I kill java.exe, and start again, no difference.
I notice that the .foreui folder in Docs&Settings is “Access Denied” to me, no matter what I try to do to it, even just peek inside. After uninstall, it’s still there. Oddly, if I right-click that folder, and try to update Security or ownership, that tab is missing in the Properties popup. So, I use an Unlocker tool to free up and delete .foreui folder, and try re-installing.
After installing and uninstalling about four versions of ForeUI, seems it’s not a version problem, but something else.
I tried disabling my Symantec Anti-Virus, but no difference.
I’ve gone to Sun’s site to validate that my Java installation is correct and working.
In the foreui.log file, I see a lot of errors looking like this:
[2010-06-23 18:33:56,859] [main] [ERROR] C:Documents and SettingsKevin.foreuiplotWebStore.4ui (The system cannot find the path specified)
This seems consistent with my experience of Access Denied on that .foreui folder.
Anything I can do? I’ve tried searching the forums here, and I see nothing on this kind of topic?
Thanks! The package looks promising, but I’m about at the end of my rope to try and get it working.
Hi Kevin, are you able to create folder in the “C:Documents and SettingsKevin” directory? Can you copy some files into the new folder you created?
Hi Xavier –
Thanks for quick reply.
I CAN create a New Folder, but then I lose control of it. I can’t rename it, or go inside it — Access Denied as well.
But, I CAN go into Application Data folder, and others in there, no problem.
You know, I came across that very KB note myself, but somehow had presumed it didn’t apply.
After I did that, the application would now start up.
Thanks Mr. Young.
I am having the same problem but with Windows 7
