View Full Version : Alice will not load

12-14-2011, 05:14 PM
Hi all,

I am attempting to configure Alice 2.2 for a school computer image which will be sent out to 100+ machines. These machines are running Windows 7 and will be on a domain with users logging into their restricted, non-admin accounts to access the software.

I can load Alice just fine in the local admin account but cannot get it to load for the restricted users. The error is given:

Alice version: 2.2 08/05/2011


at edu.cmu.cs.stage3.alice.authoringtool.dialog.SaveF orWebContentPane.guiInit(SaveForWebContentPane.jav a:238)

at edu.cmu.cs.stage3.alice.authoringtool.dialog.SaveF orWebContentPane.<init>(SaveForWebContentPane.java:45)

at edu.cmu.cs.stage3.alice.authoringtool.AuthoringToo l.dialogInit(AuthoringTool.java:644)

at edu.cmu.cs.stage3.alice.authoringtool.JAlice.main( JAlice.java:141)

Am I doing something wrong? I have assigned R/W permissions to the Alice directory yet the issue continues. Can anyone help?

Alice is wanting to write to the users home directory. That is where Alice stores its cache and preferences file.


The other thing you can try is to add the path (with read and write permission - like a network drive) to your version file

C:\Users\...\Alice 2.2\Required\etc\version.txt

2.2 12/01/2011
