Default Fixed - 02-20-2007, 11:50 PM

I have fixed it. 2 things. I set the Screen resolution to 1024x768 which Alice runs at. Alice still didn't run. I then went in the Alice\Required folder and clicked on the batch file "IfAliceFailsTryThis" and it generated a hs_err_pid text files. All in the Required folder. I assume these are error log files. In amongst the lines of info were references to Java and Sun and Fonts. I remembered that i had decreased the number of fonts in my Font folder. Luckily i had backed up the original and so reinstated it. And it worked!! It runs!!

Thanks for posting your fix.

This is the kind of little detail that can drive you crazy - and too many times when someone finds the problem, they're too (understandably) relieved that the problem is gone to also think to share the solution.
