Damian there's a new version of java 7 but it can remove java 6!
What should i do mate.

Greetings.

It's too important to get those security fixes, so you must update Java 7 when a patch is available. What I did is this:

- Go to the Java folder (inside you will see sub-folders for Java 6 and Java 7).
- Select the Java 6 folder.
- Type Control-C to copy it (which will copy everything in it, all the way down).
- Navigate back up to the top level of your C: drive.
- Type Control-V to paste the copy of the Java 6 folder.

Now go ahead and run that Java 7 update. If it does delete Java 6, you can just copy it back in from the spare you made.

BTW, mine did not delete Java 6 even though it said it might.


I wish I had done this before I upgraded to Java 7. It deleted the Program Files\Java\jre6 directory and now I can't reinstall it. The x86 directory is still there, but the tracker won't work with it.

Uninstall Java 7, reinstall Java 6, then do as witqs says, then reinstall Java7

I have submitted a bug report via: http://bugreport.sun.com/bugreport/contact_migration.jsp with all the details of what works and what does not. Maybe Oracle will fix Java 7 Clearly I do not have access to the applications code that generates the failure .. but at least I have given them a clue of the errors produced ..

I'd hesitate to say the problem may not be Oracle's but rather because it is a failure to connect to the dll properly under Java7, something in our code... still thanks for doing it.

Chris,
PRA = Port Repair Assist points.
Have a read of Alfred's 101 Ship Repair guide for further discussion.

We installed patch 1123h for our PBEM game to fix the invasion reinforcement problem and now Tracker will not work. I have tried to start a new data base and got this message:






any ideas? It was working fine until this turn.

I did make sure I changed the pwsdll.dll file.

When I tried loading my existing database which starts Dec 7, 1941, the database loads but when I try to read the next turn I get a huge list of errors that ends with this:

I'm off to see about my Java installations, maybe something got changed.

Well if you are using the beta you need to copy the pwsdll.dll from the beta2 folder into the tracker folder. You should also delete all the trackerdb.* files and then try again.

If you are still getting errors from earlier turns under the multi-load (and this happens to me too) but tracker still loads then everything is ok...

This is the bat file I am using for both of these tries:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xms384m -Xmx768m -jar "WitPTracker.jar" nomap
pause

I checked, and no file in the jre6 and below have been changed this year.

This is not a java issue from what I can see, read my post one above your last ...

I did that Damian, it didn't change anything. I have tried to start a new database using the latest turn with the above error. I am not trying to do a multi read, but I have tried both starting a new database and using my old database with the new turn. Nothing seems to work.

The first post I made was trying to start a new database, it does not work.

But, when I load my old database it loads, but I can't read the next turn. It is sounding more like a problem with the turn file, but it seems to be working fine. It loaded in WitP:AE with no problems.

Weird, the first screen shot shows that this is a pwsdll.dll issue, but the second screen shot shows a different thing. I'll send you a PM in 2 secs so you can send me a save file or two.

I've looked in the thread but probably I'm not good in searching
When I look at map in the tracker, how can I read the colours of the search arcs?
I'm trying to use map to better make a good searching planning, but I'm finding it difficult in decoding it

Many thanks

Paolo

It should match the colors of the arcs in the game. When random arcs are defined, it's a light yellow.

Yesterday, my Tracker was working fine.

Today, I load the Tracker but the application is totally unresponsive. I try to choose categories, load new turn or sort alerts - nothing happens. Tracker is frozen and clicking doesn't work. I can only shut it down via Task Manager.

I have started several Trackers today from different campaigns - same thing. Rebooted my rig - didn't help.

My computer has the same software as yesterday. My mouse is working.

What happened? Did Java upgrade automatically in the background? Was there some Windows update?

Do you point the batch file to the Java6 install? Java 7 updates have a habit of uninstalling Java6 ..

How do I do that? I have run my Tracker without any problems for the last 18 months.

The Java updates pop-up from time to time on may Windows icon tray (I am on Windows XP), informing me that the update is available. I always cancel those meassages manually.

Command Prompt in Accesories tells me my Java version is 1.7.0.05.- b06

EDIT: Strange, seems drag-and-dropping does not work anymore on my Windows. I try do drag-and-drop files to folders and nothing happens...

EDIT II: YES! I killed the bug! Followed the advice in the last post in the thread below and everything works perfectly again! Tracker is responsive.

You'll still need to point to & re-install Java 6 if it has been uninstalled.

To point to it in the witptracker.bat file
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xms512m -Xmx640m -jar "WitPTracker.jar"
pause

where the path is the same as your install..

Yes, I believe there is a way to resolve this.

But it will take a decent amount of time and a careful hand. It's on my to-do list, but not any time real soon. Sorry...
