MDS window close right after opening


I just received the signature keys from RIM and want to register for code signing so that I downgraded Jdk 1.6 to 1.5 as specified in the forum thread "http://www.blackberry.net/developers/forum/threa d.jsp?forum=1&thread=10630". Then all the JDE version is working fine but MDS is not working. The problem is that the MDS window close right after opening.

Then I have reinstalled Jdk 1.6 but no changes in MDS.

FYI: All the version of JDE and MDS was working fine before downgrading the jdk.

Currently my system configuration is:
1. jdk 1.5 and 1.6
2. JDE 4.3.0 (The build in MDS in not working. The MDS window close right after opening)

Thanks in advance.

Re: MDS window close right after opening

Hi there,


Downgrading the JDK version isn't always a seamless process. I have seen instances where some of the registry keys are left behind. One thing you can test is by executing "java -version" and "javac -version" from the command prompt. Also double-check the path environment variables.

Thanks for your reply. It was a problem with environment variable, and I fixed it. Now it is working fine.
