    Cannot Get SQLDeveloper to Run


      I'm not sure how I managed to pull this off, but...


      I have downloaded and re-extracted numerous times.  I have restored the system to a previous, known state.  But every time I try to start it up, I get the splash screen, the status bar makes it about 10% in, then an unnamed, empty window with "GoTo," "View," "Tools," "Window" opens and the whole things locks up.


      It did run properly on the very first download, but I (foolishly) decided to copy it over to another directory once I realized it was just a file download and not an actual install.


      I have searched and searched, deleting everything I could find that might have been associated with the first download, but it hasn't helped.  I've done Google searches, but cannot find anything there.


      I'm about at the end of my rope here.  I've been trying to get this thing to run for five hours now.  Nothing is working.


      Any ideas?
