Hello, I can not run apps accessing the wrl files:
here is one example I'm running by double-clicking ThirdPerson.bat:

C:J3duiBookexamplesThirdPerson>java ThirdPerson
WARNING: Canvas3D constructed with a null GraphicsConfiguration.
Can't load model at '.... esourcescataloglamp.wrl'.
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
......

All the other apps run with no problem.
What could be wrong?

Regards Goran Theander

It is odd that this would be the only one not to work since other examples use
the exact same file. I notice in your message that the file name is truncated
and there are no directory separators (slashes). This is most odd. Nothing
obvious comes to mind and I can't reproduce the problem on my end. Sorry.

One thing you could try....Open a DOS window and then type in the name of the
.bat file. Also, what if you try running java yourself, with the classpath
set as in the .bat file.
