I have followed the instructions in this article, including the last step about web start, but it still does not work, neither applets or web start. When I try to launch a JWS application by double clicking it I get the dreaded warning dialog:



To open this Web Start application, you need to download the Java Runtime Environment.


Click “More Info…” to visit the website for the Java Runtime Environment.



I do have a JRE installed, 1.6, since I for compatibility reasons can't upgrade.


Trying to launch a web start application from the commandline looks like this:


$ javaws /tmp/airview.jnlp

Java Web Start splash screen process exiting ...

Can not find message file: No such file or directory



Regular Java-programs work fine.


$ java -version

java version "1.6.0_37"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06-434-11M3909)
