Dear reader,

In a first attempt to move towards a company wide distribution of IJC via webstart I tried to launch the Java Webstart demo from the ChemAxon website. It launches the InstantJChem splash screen, but once the splash screen disappears all activity stops… No IJC window popping up.

I am using OS X 10.8.5 and Java version 8.31.

Any suggestions what might be going wrong?

So for now, you can do 2 things:

I hope this helps and sorry for the inconvenience

Dear Martin, David,


I downgraded to Java 7 and indeed, now all works as expected.
