Hi All, I have a program that reads a property file when it first starts and it uses these various properties in the setup. I can change these properties from the GUI and then save them to disk. What is very strange here is that if I start the program from one command window, modify the properties and save them, exit the program, and then start the program again from another command window, it uses the old properties. If I start the program from the same command window that I save the properties in, it will be correct. Can anyone tell me what is going on here and how can I fix this problem? The properties file should be read and used no matter where I am starting it from. Many thanks for your help!!!
