@wirralnick: Not sure if i already asked about the basic configuration you are running, so I will ask (again):
What OS are you running? 32 or 64 bit? is 64 bit java already installed?
Did you try both standalone and installer version?
Did the old version (0.4.x) work for you?
Running 64 bit java - downloaded it twice to check.
old version worked.
it won't even begin to work now - as I said - it downloads, unpacks and installs, asks me if I want to create an icon and open program then nothing. If I go into program files and click wallet icon it appears to start nis and ncc but then brings up the 'web page can't be found' error...
