I was reading where 1.8 will be supported until 2030 by Oracle. :)

Problem is solved! Thank you to forum member Rod who had the solution which was go into settings and associate the .jar files with Java. It was set to notepad and that was the reason for notepad opening the AerowinxStart file. And of course thank you Hardy for your help with re-install and the helpful links. Most important thank you for PSX it is a fabulous simulation and your customer support is first class you are a gentleman. Hoppie thank you also for the hints. Have a great weekend men and have a drink on me!

The NG FMC will be next addition.

Even if a newer Java version were to provide this function I won't implement it because -- on the development side -- I will stick to Java 1.8 for the rest of my life. You can use higher Java versions to run PSX. But I won't use higher versions for the PSX development.

Thanks Hoppie probably one of these damn Windows updates they're constantly sending. That's quite possible. PSX has always been one of the most reliable programs I have. I honestly didn't think it was a PSX problem.

Smells like Windows lost the knowledge on how to relate the .jar files with the correct Java VM/interpreter.

There have been other people who found a workaround but I forgot... it's a Windows/Java issue, not PSX.

So after much appreciated help from Hardy I have reinstalled PSX. However now when I double click on AerowinxStart I get a popup Notepad box with what looks like the file but it won't start. I tried right click to start with Java no luck. This never happened in the whole time I had PSX installed previously. I downloaded 10.155 and even tried it after that. I also checked the errors log file and there's nothing showing errors. Anyone have an idea of what's going on?

I remember that on Windows (and maybe ONLY on Windows) there is a "drop the background out" special color that literally allows you to reach through the now disappeared color and click on the underlying window without even focusing the window you reach through. This is not an alpha blend so it should have zero performance impact.

But whether Java supports this mode is unclear.

The PSX desktop frame cannot provide a hole where you could "look through" to see other applications below it. The PSX desktop frame is always a solid rectangle.

Hardy-  we discussed this years ago, and at that time there was no ability to move forward on this matter.  It would solve many scenery generator issues quite nicely... has anything in Java development, and/or your schedule, allowed for future investigation into this?

Hope you're well and safe!
