    The Java JAR file "" could not be launched. Check the Console for possible error messages.

    Do you have Java installed? Or have you got the latest update?
    Where is that .jar file from anyway?

    Have you tried deleting it and then re-downloading? Could have been corrupted on download.

    Do you mind posting the link to see if others can open it? It is a while since I had a .jar file (2005) thus I don't remember what I did to make it run. It was some "script" to copy music off a shared iTunes library in my network.

    Anyway, I haven't found much via search, have you found any pointers?
