I just downloaded the castle/village/temple pack and when I click on the executable .jar, it will not open, i have tried it on both of my computers and both do not respond, I have downloaded the file twice now with the same result. i checked my java version, 1.5, so no probs with that, any suggestions?

You probably have WinRAR installed. That program takes over the file association for JAR files. To run the JAR as a Java application you need to have Java associated with JAR files. If you are non-technical, the easiest way to do that is to uninstall, then re-install the JRE (downloadable from our support page). More-technical users can go into Folder Options -> File Types and change the default program from WinRAR to Java.

Check jdale's suggestion here, and see if it works for you.

You can also try this:

Make a temporary working directory.
Open a command line window (Start, Run, cmd), and navigate to the directory that your jar file is in using the "cd" command. (ie. cd "C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Desktop\Dundjinni Stuff")
Type: java -jar "(name of art pack).jar"

A java-based graphical installer should open. From that point, just follow the prompts.

in my Folder Options, Under File types, it states that JAR files are set to open with Java 2 Platform standard edition binary, but it still does not open.

You can try removing and reinstalling Java (and making sure that there's only one Java version installed on your system) or taking the command line approach. Either way should work.

Thanks for Helping, but I belive the file is corrupted some how. I've tried all suggestions and it's still not working, I'll keep trying.

Sounds like the download got fouled. You can redownload via a link on the order details page, accessible via the order tracking link in the left hand column of the store page.

Trying it from the command line shoulkd give you a good indication of any errors.

By the way, have I mentioned the command line?
