Hmm... try deleting the file jack.xml and restarting. If it works tell me because I might have included it in the distro by mistake.

Okay, for now go inside the calendars/ drawer, duplicate one of the other calendars and rename the file to calendar0.jpg.

If that doesn't work open a shell and type: appdir:jack -sysinfo

And send the resulting file to me.

I have a problem with the latest 2.7 version, don't know if it happen also in 2.6 and above as my latest version installed was 2.4 aniway.

At the end of the installing procedure the installer end with this kind of message:

"can't find wget in c:"

I have it of course but Jack did not accept if for some reason, then if i start Jack normally it load the weather window but then it will freeze the program window!

I even can't close it at all

Are you referring to something that happens after downloading an item from the AppStore?

---

Please open a shell and type Appdir:jack -sysinfo send me the logfile so I can see whether it tells me anything useful.
