      Hi. I'm trying to use PCGen on Windows 7 build 7100, and I can't really get it to run. I can run it if I run the .jar, but the .bats aren't even recognized as valid programs, and extensive googling has not yielded any solutions. When I *do* run the .jar, it's extremely slow and locks up at the slightest provocation, no matter what I try to do. Is there anything I can try?

      You using the 64 bit version? I had to do this with it: 1) Create a pcgen.cmd file with the following in it: C: Program Files (x86) Java jre6 bin java.exe

        1) Create a pcgen.cmd file with the following in it:

        "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Dswing.aatext=true -Xms256m -Xmx1024m -jar "C:\Program Files (x86)\PCGen\PCGen5161\pcgen.jar"

        2) Put the pcgen.cmd file in your C:\program files (x86)\pcgen\pcgen5161\ directory.

        3) Change your shortcut link to the pcgen.cmd file.

        An easier solution is that it seems that PCGEN doesn t recoginize the java links if you don t already have JRE installed when you install PCGEN. Had exact same

          I got my win7 to install by uninstalling PCGEN. Installing JRE. REBOOT. (must reboot) and then installing PCGEN. Then all the links worked fine.
