0.8.5 does not start the browser.
I will redo my post since I edited it so much it became unreadable:
Version 0.8.5 browser seems to have problems on the windows platform. I tried it on 10 different computers, and it worked on 2 of them. I tried both the SimpleBrowser included in the distribution and to embed it in my application.
The problem does not seem to be linked to the windows version (I got it to work on Win 2000 advanced server and Windows XP2 with AND without SP2 installed), on the JRE version (All my computers had either JRE 1.4.2_05 and JRE 1.4.2_04, and it worked on both), or on the IE version (I didn't try Mozilla).
I didn't receive any exception, nor did I had any event in the event viewer. The browser window opens, but there's no browser component, only an empty gray frame.
I tried changing OS version and JRE version on a computer where it worked, but it worked all the time. I'm unable to find something common on the computers where it worked. At least two of the computer where it didn't work were able to run the browser with jdic 0.8.4.1 installed (I didn't try on the others).
If someone was able to reproduce this problem, it would be greatly appreciated. After a couple hour of testing, I'm still unable to pinpoint a reason for this behaviour.
