GenJ 3.0 setup launches Nokia software (sic!)

Postby gcevolani » Wed Aug 18, 2010 3:42:19

Hi,

I'm a new GenJ user, thank you very much for the beautiful software.

While launching the 3.0 setup on Win XP Pro, after the extraction the Nokia Ovi Suite program (a software to manage the contents of Nokia phones) started and no installation was possible. I solved only by uninstalling Nokia Ovi Suite (a bad program, by the way!).

No idea why this happen, I suppose a coincidence in file names and/or extensions.

Hope this may help.

Thank you again,

Gus

Hi Gus

thanks for the report - I'm puzzled but yes, it sounds like a name/association overlap.

We'll keep it on the backburner for when/if others report the same thing.

Glad 3.0 works out for you - please make sure to also upgrade to the latest nightly - there are some changes that need vetting which have already found friends

Cheers

I'm being told this might be happening because .jar files are setup as file associations handled by Nokia's OVI Suite.

If one uses the windows archive (.zip that includes setup.exe) I'd assume this not to happen as it runs java.exe directly.

Just fyi

Cheers
Nils
