    You do have Java installed, so that's not the problem. Try launching the game from the command line (not JavaApplicationStub, but the .jar file) and see if that helps.

    command line

    I am pretty new to macs. How do you launch an app from the command line in terminal?

    Launching Java apps is slightly different than other apps. You can still open up Terminal, type "cd " (without quotes, don't forget the space!) drag the application bundle to the terminal, press enter, then "cd Contents/MacOS/", press enter, then do "./" and the application name (usually you can just press tab to autocomplete the name) press enter, and report on anything that looks like it could cause it to crash. However, you are trying to run a Java application, which uses slightly different method of launching. The reason why I told you to launch the app from the Terminal is that there might be a bug in JavaApplicationStub and to display any error messages that might lead to the crash. You can still launch the Java app using the instructions above.

    But meh, I could be over thinking this. The best course of action is to contact the company that made it and send in your crash report.

    Has anything environmental changed on your machine? Java apps are pretty sensitive to things like OS upgrades and Java version upgrades.

    The application is think or swim charting package. Its a real time charting package . As far as support there is virtually none as it relates to the mac.

    Nothing has changed at all on my just stopped working on launch. Now I need to launch with 1 chart open and then open charts one by one. On a rare occasion all of the charts will open ( about 8 in all) but most of the time I get a java stub error.

    I am still not clear how to open in terminal. I did notice that java has had problems on the mac.

    any other ideas?
