I've just downloaded the zip file of ffdec 1.6.0 but when I double click on the exe file (even as administrator) it return me the following message: This application requires Java Runtime Enviroment 1.6.0 and lead me on Java download page. I've tried to reinstall Java without success. I tried and old version I had and worked fine (ffdec 1.5.0u1).

Which version of Java do you have? 32bit or 64bit? Please install the other one or install both.

Installed both Version 7 Update 21 (x86 and x64) and rebboted the computer but still getting the message. (I'm on Windows 7 x64)
1) Move ffdec to writable folder (not program files) 2) Run ffdec.exe with parameter --l4j-debug From commandline: ffdec.exe --l4j-debug 3) Attach generated launch4j.log file here Thank you.
Here is the log.

There is a strange key "1.7u3". Do you have other java than "1.7.0 update 21" installed? Please go to Control panel -> Add or remove programs and check if there are more Javas. Thank you.
No I don't have other java, only Java 7 update 21 and Java 7 update 21 (64-bit), could it due to the fact that I had the bad idea of restore windows using the default System Restore some times ago?
Please doubleclick attached REG file. It will fix JRE registry so the EXE should work. I don't know how this situation arised. My colleague tells me it could be caused by automatic java updater which sometimes messes the things up.
