Subject: [Talk-GB] Running JOSM (+ Java) on flash disk

Java on the disk too, for times I am using a Java-less machine (e.g. a
I have it mostly working but with some errors. My understanding of
java is negligible but I would like to work on this. I have started
some notes here:
I copied an installation of the latest Java runtimes from an
installation on my home PC to my flash disk.
In a windows batch file, I can run JOSM like so:
\java\bin\java.exe -jar \josm\josm-latest.jar
The first line tells Java/JOSM where to find my preferences, and this
JOSM then runs but I get an error popup at startup:
Error initializing test SpellCheck
...and in the DOS box on launch it says:
It looks like Java and/or JOSM is not finding things it expects to
find, either within Java's libraries or within josm.jar.
Any ideas on tackling this would be most welcome.
