Topic: Weblight 4.0.10c on 10.4 will not start, Java exception

I have tried Weblight on two Apple Macs, both Intel running 10.4.10.

On my iMac, I am successfully using 4.0.10b.

On my MacBook trying to load 4.0.10c returns:

Cannot launch Java application
A static initializer of the main class threw an exception: java.lang.NullPointerException"

Executing java -version on the MacBook returns:

java version "1.5.0_07"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_07-164)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_07-87, mixed mode, sharing)

I tried reinstalling the "JavaForMacOSX10.4Release5.dmg" update from Apple but this made no difference.

As it stands, I am hesistant to upgrade 4.0.10b to 4.0.10c on my iMac until I can resolve this issue.

Please can you suggest how I should proceed
Thanks
-Colin

I get the exact same error. I'm on an Intel MacBook Pro with OS X 10.4.10 and all the latest updates.

Thank you for reporting the problem.

I'll put 4.0.10b back on the site until I can find out what is going on.

Sorry for the trouble.

I've performed a further test, and to confirm:  4.0.10b on the Macbook does work correctly, thus the issue is definitely in  4.0.10c.

I'm fairly sure that I've found and fixed the problem with 4.0.10c.

You can download 4.0.10d from http://www.illumit.com/preview/

Many thanks

Apologies, I've been in Paris for a few days. Just back, and I can confirm that 4.0.10d starts correctly on the MacBook that was experiencing problems with 4.0.10c.
