Win XP SP3, Sun Java 6 Update 18. TG used to work fine couple of weeks ago, guess some update messes with it now.
On start throws error "JNI could not start VM, not enough memory" (or similar)

Tried change -Xmx line to -Xmx50 and 256 as suggested in other thread, to no avail. Only thing now is that there's no error but TG won't start nevertheless.

Java = FAIL. (Don't mean to spoil the TG author's effort but for desktop applications t plainly sucks.)

This is not java, it's the stupid launcher (tuxguitar.exe).. that comes with advanced installer. i also tried with janel project, but some users reported that it can't find a JVM installed.

I'm sure If you run the .bat file, the application starts without problems. the problem with the .bat version is that it will keep a terminal window opened.

if you download the Jet version, it also will start without problems.
