Application can not be started!

Hi,

since I installed GeoGebra RC 5.0.2 I can not start my GeoGebra files on a comfortable way. That means: I can start the program, but I can not start my files directly - only indirectly by the program.

Whenever I try, I get the message "Anwendung kann nicht gestarted werden!" (= Application can not be started!)

Fehler: Angegebene Datei/URL konnte nicht geladen werden:

C:\Users\MatheSchmidt\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\61\4fa56afd-4779abf6


I think there is trouble with the Java Web Start Launcher, which ist the default program for my GeoGebra files, of course.

I am working with Windows 7 (64-Bit) and Java Version 7 Update 67. (I wonder if GeoGebra knows I use Java Version 7.)

That's what I did:

1) I have uninstalled GeoGebra and installed the latest version 5.0.8.

2) I have uninstalled Java and installed the latest version.

3) I cleared the Java cache.

4) I have (temporarily) disabled the firewall.


Thank you so much for some hints

We no longer support Java Web Start. Try right-clicking on a .ggb file

Open With -> Choose Default Program -> GeoGebra.exe

Dear Michael,


thank you for your reply!

Of course that was the very first thing I tried. Without success! Whenever I do this, my computer chooses the Web Launcher as default programm, no matter whether I choose the exe-file of GeoGebra GeoGebra 4.4 or 5.


Don't know the reason why:

Strange. Maybe try Control Panel -> Java -> Temporary Files Settings -> Delete Files... and make sure you select "Installed Applications and Applets"

Unbelievable! I had missed the check box. It's that simple! To be honest, I am ashamed a little ... :wink:

Thank you so much that the hours of trouble, of installing and uninstalling the are over.
