Whenever I try to launch any JNLP-file in my browser, I get the following error:

at java.util.StringTokenizer.<init>(Unknown Source)

any help is highly appreciated.

From the stack trace, you are using Firefox and the deployer is falling down when trying to process your proxy server settings. So have a look at them and see if there's anything peculiar. (Tools, Options, Advanced, Network, Settings.)

Thanks, but I'm not using a proxy at all and the error is the same when I'm using IE.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools

It's not a secret anymore!
