#1154 The Program Won't Start at All
Author: user Mettaton

Type: bug
Visibility: Everybody

So there is a recurring problem I have with this decompiler, which is the program not opening at all. I have tried opening the .jar, I have tried the .bat and I have tried the .exe. None seem to open the program, and I even tried: - Uninstalling and reinstalling the decompiler. - Restarting the computer. - Uninstalling and updating java (It's up-to-date) - Running FFDec from cmd. When opening the .exe, it showed the logo followed by nothing else. I had also opened the .bat and it just gave me: Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.Main.clearTemp( at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.Main.main( I currently have installed version 7.1.2, I have also tried the nightly build (Doesn't work either.) Is there something I'm missing? If so, what else can I do to help fix this problem? I would like to know if there is a way to fix this that I haven't tried. Another thing I'd like to note, the decompiler has worked before and never gave me this error at all. In fact, this whole problem started more than a few weeks ago but before that, it worked. Please reply back, and thanks in advance.

I forgot to also note that I have attempted to search solutions for this, but to no avail I found nothing.
Could you please take the same screenshot of the exception in the current nightly build?
developer d-to-work-properly-until-recen listFiles: "runs fine with 64-bit-JRE and throws NullPointerException under 32-bit-JRE on Windows 7 64-bit." I'll add a null check.
Here is a picture of both .bat files open from the nightly build and version 7.1.2
Did you download the latest nightly? There is no line 1801 in the latest nightly.
Ah well, that must have been an old version I had installed. I opened the newly installed nightly .exe file and it worked, .bat appears to take a while but the .exe works. The only thing I'm confused about now is how the nightly build works but the normal 7.1.2 doesn't. (I lack knowledge of java's inner coding..)
