      Hi,

      When trying to invoke gcca, java web start shows exception:

      unexpected exception java.lang.NullPointerException

      java.lang.NullPointerException

      java -version from the command line shows:
      C:\Documents and Settings\compuser>java -version
      java version "1.5.0_10"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_10-b03)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_10-b03, mixed mode, sharing)

      about java from the java control panel shows same version. java runtime settings show 1.5.0_10.

      laptop is win xp, sp3. IE7 uses lan settings autoconfig with http://wpad/wpad.dat.

      Any help, or pointers to documentation, would be appreciated.

      Thanks in Advance.
