I'l double check the build. The about.bmp file used with launch4j was corrupted, and I had to remake the file for the build to work. I'll have to check the status of that file to be sure you weren't having a problem related to that.

..the win7 and linux versions start, xpsp3 does not. Downloaded many times, the welcome bmp shows for about half a minute and then I get the error message with ok to leave.. the arduino 0022 works.. -p.

The same problem with the latest download (20110822) as with the very first one: ..getting an error when starting mpide.exe - "An error occured while starting the application", "Launch4j".. (;-) -p
