Help for ActivityChanger startup problems


If ActivityChanger doesn't start, follow these instructions:
Open a DOS-Box by selecting Run in startmenu

A new window will come up

Please type command in the field and click in OK.
Now there is a new black windows, the good old dos-box.


Type

java -version
set

and hit ENTER after each command. There should be an output like this:

Now search for outputs with CLASSPATH. In the example you can find
CLASSPATH=c:\irgendwo\irgendwas
(there will be something different for irgendwo\irgendwas at yours). These wrong CLASSPATH entries cause most problems. So delete them! They are configured in C:\autoexec.bat. Make a backup-copy of C:\autoexec.bat. Then open C:\autoexec.bat with wordpad (or other editor). Should look like:

The important line is

SET CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;.;c:\irgendwo\irgendwas

This line must be deactivated. Just write REM before it.

REM SET CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;.;c:\irgendwo\irgendwas


Save changes (als plain text, not as Word-document!) Restart your computer and ActivityChanger should work now!
If it still doesn't work, send email to me. Include all information from the commandos above and tell me your windows-version. Send an email (this is an example) like this
