Default Alice not launching - 10-13-2009, 10:22 AM

We have a computer lab running Windows XP Pro and we are not able to get Alice to launch, it fails with the following error:

Unable to create the gallery viewer




Alice version: 2.2 3/30/2009



Throwable that caused the error:

java.lang.NullPointerException

at edu.cmu.cs.stage3.alice.authoringtool.galleryviewe r.GalleryViewer.<init>(GalleryViewer.java:1069)

Any idea what we could try to troubleshoot this?

Update:

We did some testing and Alice will run if I run it as an administrator, but on the student accounts, which are really locked down, I get the above error. Is there some folder that the kids need rights to? Any ideas?
