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

Maybe you had it hooked up to renderfarming.fi? If so you may have to reset the settings by:
1) Closing it via the CATS icon in the tray if it is running
2) Deleting /Users//cats.cfg or ~/cats.cfg
3) Starting it again.

This will pop up the Re-attach wizard and things will be back to normal.

Thanks for the reply, though I found the origin of the problem before you sent it. 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 !
