Forte not running???

When I double click on a java file in Windows Explorer, I get the message that Forte is not running. I should first start Forte. This has worked in the past, and I do not believe I have changed any paths. It has been about a month since I tried to work with this so perhaps I have forgotten something basic.
I do have Forte open and have opened a java file in Forte and compiled and executed it. Forte does work. The code is correct.

You are trying to open a .java file correct? Strange that you would get that message, and I haven't been able to find anything on the web about it, but first thing I would make sure of is that .java files are associated with the Forte executable.
Still digging around, if I find anything I'll let ya know

Ah, found this at Sun's Forte website:


How do I associate java files with the IDE (without having a new instance of the IDE opened for each new file I double click?
Associate the .java file with openfile.bat (under the IDE's home dir). This association works only if you have the IDE open. You can also associate all .java files with the IDE at the time of installation.


This might be what you are looking for, let me know
The FAQ is located here

Thank you so much for the reply. I am feeling quite isolated here at home job hunting for several months now. The files are associated with forte, and forte is open and running. That is the puzzle. It appears I have done everything correctly as it has been before. This is so elusive and puzzling.
Thank you for the reference.

Don't want you feeling isolated! I've got Forte running at home, I'll mess around with it and see if I can either duplicate your error or figure what is making mine work right
Good luck in the job hunt, I'll be joining the crowd sometime next year!

Thank you kindly. I went to a TRW Job Fair tonight from 4 to 8. There was a room full by 3:30 they said, and people were still there after 8. My goal is to learn EJB's as soon as I get Forte working properly once again.
Thanks.

Thanks. I tried to find where to ask my question on the Forte site; actually, I think I did post a request for assistance, but I also tried JavaRanch as I didn't know the correct place at Forte to ask my question. I wasn't sure when I would get an answer if I posted to the wrong site, too.
I will try what you suggested. Thahk you for helping.
Added note: I went to the site as you suggested above, but I don't know where to post a basic question like this after I get to the page you have indicated. I am fairly certain I did post the question last week but maybe to the wrong subgroup.

Betty

Sreevenisa,
I have posted this problem as you suggested and have received no response. The problem continues. The title of the message on the
F4J Forum is "Forte not running". I really would like to know some information to help get this running. I had asked about paths or other possibilities.
Regards,
Betty
