Why is Java not working ( again )?
Answer
5/15/19 2:28 PM
I'm starting a new thread for this, since the bug is different from the last time. When I click on the iGridd applet, it tells me: "java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP respon...".

I tried Rasto's total reinstall, from a July 4, 2014 post:
1. Go to Java control panel - uninstall iGridd
2. Uninstall Java
3. Download offline Java installer
4. install java
5. Install iGridd
but I am still getting the same message as above.

Any ideas?

Update: Could it have something to do with the "Important Oracle Java License Update"  of April 16th?

Same here! And I can't even get the list of 55276 griddlers
Looks like the whole site is messed up at the moment - crashed ????

Thanks, Paul. After reading your reply, I was heartened to find that I was not alone, and that it might be a real bug. So I tried my iGridd icon once more, and it worked!!! I love it when thing fix themselves!

Here we go again. Every time I upgrade Java, I have the same problem: it doesn't work!!! This time I used Rasto's method right away, but it gave a new error: "java.lang.Exception: Invalid login". I get the error no matter which EXE program I use to open igridd.jnlp:
javaw.exe in Program Files (x86)
javaw.exe in Program Files
javaws.exe in Program Files (x86)
javaws.exe in Program Files
Am I the only one that's encountering this problem?

Hi
please try this application - https://www.griddlers.net/download .
It is iGridd bundled together with Java.

Thank you, Rasto. It still gives the same error, "java.lan.Exception: Invalid login".

Here's what I did:
1) Started with a clean slate: deleted Java update 241.
2) Ran https://www.griddlers.net/download
3) The Griddlers icon appeared on my desktop, so I clicked it.

Got the error popup again.

I checked my
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java" file, and there was no folder for Java update 241, so I don't know what your download uses for java.

What did I do wrong?

There should be griddlers.exe in Program files, or just search Griddlers in start menu.

It's there, but I'm still getting the "java.lan.Exception: Invalid login" error.

It has been five days since I received a reply to this question. Doesn't anybody have an ideas? I am tired of having to struggle to solve my griddlers online. It takes way too much time, and itsn't fun!

I discovered what was wrong quite by accident. I noticed that the password remembered by griddlers.exe in Program Files was the wrong length. So I entered the same 8-digit password that I have been using to log in to griddlers.net . And it worked! Somehow the password got changed, and I never noticed it.
