I don't know if it's because of a java update, but CATS won't show up its window anymore. I know it's open since I get the loading screen and then the icon in the tray and the button in the taskbar. But no matter what I click on, the window won't show up.
I checked my java version on the java website and I have the recommended version.
I'm on windows 7 x64.
Any ideas ?
Thanks

Oh my. I just found the origin of the problem. Since I removed one monitor from my dual monitor setup and the CATS window was originally positionned on that monitor, it basiccally appeared in dead space, so I couldn't access it (even though I restarted my computer). Now that I've put the monitor back, it's there again !

if you ever encounter some thing like this and you are on a windows
machine use the left or right arrow + windows key to Reposition
the window.
this is a strange bug that is caused by windows and the program "remembering"
the absolute position where you left it last time. but why windows even allows
to open windows that are positioned beyond the screen space is beyond my
understanding.
