Hi Simon

This isn't a problem I have encountered before.
It may be useful if you provided the script.

An alternative of course is just to set up a web launch page:

For other applications I've done this by installing them on a network share which is visible to everyone and then getting them to run them from there.  I can't get this to work with Jemboss though.

The latter method works fine, but this isn't an option when I've got to make this accessible to everyone.  Using a UNC path seems to mess up the classpath so that Jemboss can't find the modules it needs.

Is there any way this could be implemented in Jemboss to allow for this kind of installation?  The relevant thread can be found here:
