Hi Kevin-

Then it sounds like the script that runs runIDV from the IDV application:

<top installdirectory>/IDV_4.0/

isn't picking up the extensions. I'll let you and Sean figure it out over a beer. ;-)

Hi Don,

That's the odd thing - when I run the runIDV script by hand there are no
errors and everything comes up as it should.

Yes, I installed the IDV as an admin (and clicked the box to install
JOGL) to install for all users.

It sounds like a Java 3D issue.  Did you install the JOGL for all
users or just for your user id?  If the latter, are you running IDV
from the same account?  If you open a terminal window, cd into the
installation directory and run the runIDV script by hand. That way you
should see any error messages print to the screen.

I am having a problem launching the IDV (both v4.0 and v3.1u1) from the
launch icon on Mac OSX 10.8.2.

When launching from the icon, the splash screen comes up and then the
Data Chooser window.  But the splash screen never goes away and the
Display Window never appears.

When I run the script /Applications/IDV_4.0/runIDV from a terminal, it
works properly.

I am running the following version of java:

java version "1.6.0_41"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_41-b02-445-11M4107)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.14-b01-445, mixed mode)

I could certainly use the IDV launching from a terminal, but the launch
icon is more handy.

Any other Mac users having similar issues?

Warmest Regards!
