You previously sent this email on 5 July, and both Curtis and I
sent you answers on 6 July. We tried to duplicate your problem
on a Windows 98 system not connected to the Internet, but never
got the error you report. Thus we suggested that you should check
whether TCP/IP is installed on your Windows 98 system, and gave
you instructions for checking that. Did you check it?
I also explained to you that when 'Java3D' is disabled it indicates
that the SpreadSheet got an UnsatisfiedLinkError when it tried
to start Java3D (it could not load the Java3D native library, or
OpenGL is not properly installed). So I asked if you could run
'java HSVDisplay' correrctly in your visad/examples directory, as
a test for whether Java3D is installed. Did you try to run it?
On July 7 we made a change to VisAD, to try to guard against
the error you got. We told you it was difficult to test this
change, since we are unable to duplicate your error. Did you
re-download and re-install VisAD since July 7, and try again?
Bottom line, you got lots of support. Did you try our
