Orion Install as per Cattle Drive

To work my way through the Cattle Drive Servlet area, I installed OrionServer 1.4.5 in NT environment. The unzipped orion folder is located in the root directory and I copied tools.jar into that folder. From c:\orion, I run java -jar orion.jar and the startup fails. I get an exception in main; java.lang.VerifyError: (class: com/evermind/server/ApplicationServer, method: ux signature: ()V) Incompatible object argument for invokespecial.
Any ideas what the problem is?

Good question. I've used version 1.4.5 and 1.5.2 and I've never run into this problem before (but I am now). While I try to find out what is causing this problem, I recommend using version 1.5.2.

I posted this as a bug in July. Today I got a response:

Corrupt binary class, fixed in 1.5.2 (and some more in 1.6.0) as you noted.

Hi Mike and Marilyn, Just to let you know that I have just installed orion 1.5.2 into e:\orion on a Windows 2000 system and started it via a Cygwin session in the background, and it works ok.
