The updater is a JAR file, which stands for Java ARchive. If you double-click it, then Java should fire up and run the file. If you double-click it and it opens a folder instead, then you have some kind of decompression software (WinRAR is famous for this) which has hijacked Java's "owenership" of .jar files on your computer. In that case, you will need to reconfigure WinRAR, or Windows, to properly handle .jar files, or you may even be able to right-click the installer JAR file and choose "Open with..." and use Java to open it.

There's a good post around here somewhere with all the details.


That was the problem. Danke sir!

And thanks for getting the patch out people! Whohooo!

You may just want to download the full version again and install that, then move your user art, maps, etc. into the new installation directory.

Cool...thank you very much, but can you please explain something to me:

Why does my install log say:

RegDB Key: SOFTWARE\Fluid\Dundjinni
RegDB Val: 1.0.4

I have just done a complete reinstall but when I start it up, it open as a version 1.0.6 - and when I want to update any jar files including 104,105,106,107 then it cant find it on my system?

I will post this here as well folks.....

I cannot stress enough.......If you are using Vista...

TURN UAC (User Account Control) OFF.....and leave it off.

It is a pain in the backside.....and it will block
your installation of the patch.....

I agree here. As long as you know what you're doing. I turned it off a long time ago, best move one can make, again, if you're familiar enough with PCs and software.

Shutting off the UAC enabled 1.07 update to progress and install.

Upon completion however the fantasy folder still appeared blank (note that I have no art packs installed and I installed from 1.06)

I have just finished installing from a fresh download (1.07) and the program is running fine.

I did notice that the Directory structure has changed from Dundjinni/ to Dundjinni Enterprises/Dundjinni, this may be causing problems with the update version.

From C:\Program Files\Dundjinni? Don't you mean the original was C:\Program Files\Fluid ? That was the default installation path prior for Windows prior to this Dundjinni 1.0.7.

Just a quick comment on the update -

THANK YOU!!!

I've had the program for a while but could never use it but after installing this patch everything seems to be working great!   

Can't wait to see v2.0!

O.K. I'm fine with re-installing, but when I try to get the art packs, I'm not sure where to put them. Just putting them into the C:Program files/dungeonjinni doesn't seem to be working. HELP

You need to reinstall the proprietary artpacks themselves (after reinstalling DJ) since they need to register with the program. Simply placing the artpack asset folders into DJ won't do the trick.

And, with a new, full reinstall, you'll need the latest versions of the artpacks - which should be available for download on the order details page (accessible via the order tracking link in the lower left hand column of the store page).

I've uninstalled and re-installed about 8 times now. I can get the platinum edition to work just fine, but then I try to install the art pack (which is a zip, then a rar) and then I'm unsure where to unzip the art zip file from the rar (that is which folder in the dungeonjinni enterprises). I'm about ready to stop using this great program that I've paid a good sum of money for with all the art packs.
Now I'm just beating my head against a wall (fortunatly they are padded).

Your artpacks do come as Zip files but what is inside of them is a Java ARchive. A JAR file. Not a RAR file. You are probably using WinRAR which stupidly tells Windows that it will handle them.

In a Windows environment that hasn't been screwed up by WinRAR, you can double click on the artpack JAR files and they will run as Java programs and install the artwork.

You need to configure WinRAR not to grab the JAR files.

Here is a link to an explanation on how to disassociate JAR files in WinRAR, WinZIP and WinACE

All is well

Thanks for the patch.
