I have just installed Javaws on RedHat Linux 7.1 ...I dint try to be creative...just did what was written in the document...but at the end of the installation, I get this message...Afterwards, whenever I try to run javaws, it gives me the same msg !
Java Web Start splash screen process exiting ...
Can not find message file: No such file or directory
OK -- here's the problem -- figured out thanks to other posts in this forum. JWS tries to get connection info from the system's default browser. In my case Netscape was set to the default browser but I recently had uninstalled it. JWS failed with no messages or output anywhere (C'mon now -- don't we deserve an error message or something?!)
After resetting IE as my default browser the application manager now comes up and the demos run
Hopefully this exception will be handled better in future releases of JWS
check your resources directory under java web start and see if you have a messages.properties file in there
if you dont create one and copy this into it.

not sure if this will work but its may be worth a shot
I have a client trying to install our product on her computer, a Dell Inspiron 3800 which is running Windows 98. She successfully installs JWS, but when she tries to start JWS, she gets an error message "SPLASH caused an invalid page fault in module KERNEL32.DLL, ...."
I looked in her resources folder and found messages.properties, and it had exactly the file shown in the message from dalesearle. In fact, it looks like that file is installed whenever Java Web Start is installed, as the same file is showing up on my computer, where I never have problems starting
It looks like her default browser is set to Explorer; it's not clear that she ever even had Netscape on this computer. How can I check that for sure?
Any other suggestions on how to fix her problem would be greatly appreciated.
