When trying to start the Java based applications ArcIMS Administrator, Designer or Author, only the outline of the application appears or nothing happens at all. The javaw.exe process has been created and can be seen in the Task Manager, but the actual Java application does not launch successfully. Any other Java applications like Java Web Start may show the same behavior.
This is caused by another system resource that prohibits the javaw.exe process from running successfully. Issues like this may be due to a conflict with the Z3950 Connector, PCAnywhere and some Antivirus software.
This issue has been resolved in ArcIMS 9.1.
Contact Symantec Support for more information and possible workarounds on this issue with PCAnywhere and Java applications.
