I have installed VUE 3.0, but when I try to start the program I get an init failed error. I have attached an image of the error.

It looks like VUE tries to create a folder called vue_2 at \\depemserv\. This is a server on the network and I don't have the rights to write to this server. Can't this folder be placed in C:\\Programmer\VUE\ where the program is installed? How do I do this?

Currently, VUE will write to whatever Java considers to be "user.home". Unfortunately, this creates problems like you're seeing occasionally, we hope to have a fix for this in the next point release.

The latest VUE version 3.0.2 supports pointing at a different home folder, see here for details:

I have the same issue Mike and I do not understand your help link. I just loaded Snow Leopard onto a MacBook. I used to be able to open a vue or vpk file just by clicking on it; now, I have to open the application first then, click open a VUE file. I could really use a fix here as I just got all my almost 200 students to use VUE for their schoolwork. I cannot get a screenshot of the init fail but the first line
at tufts.vue.SplashScreen.<init>(SplashScreen.java:43)
at tufts.vue.VUE.initApplication(NUE.java:1195)
and many more lines including things about Native Method and Launch Runner.

thx

Jeffrey,

Can you check and make sure you don't have 2 version of VUE on your mac? It sounds as if you have a pre snowleopard release that is associated with vue files and opens when you click a vue document, and a current release that you open by double clicking the app.

I think I'm having the same problem, although I'm the only user on this computer, so I'm not sure that it's exactly the same.
Any suggestions?
