JabRef doesn’t open an actual window on my Windows 11. It does launch and I can see in the Task Manger that the program kinda runs but there is no window to work with. I can also see that when starting JabRef, the icon on the taskbar shows up.
My java version is 17.0.6. Running it as administrator doesn’t work, either. I have a ThinkPad T580. Earlier, I uninstalled and then reinstalled it and it worked for me, but this can’t be the solution for the future. If someone could help, that would be great.
It should be irrelevant if you have a Java version installed on your system, as JabRef comes bundled with its own version of it. What method did you use to install JabRef and what version of JabRef are you using? If you are able to open JabRef, you can find some info at Help > About JabRef. Do you have to re-install everytime you want to start JabRef, or was the only a one time occurence?
Hey @ThiloteE, yes I followed the installation you linked and I downloaded the msi file (Version 5.9) for Windows. I’m not able to open JabRef, unfortunately. Yes, last time, the only way to solve the problem was to delete and then to reinstall jabref. But now, that it happened agaain, I guess it can’t be this way to reinstall it all the time.
I downloaded the portable version of JabRef and extracted it on a USB stick but the problem is the same. I mean I think I could reinstall via the msi file but that doesn’t solve the issue for me in the future.
