just purchased UWorld...can't launch Qbank

8/26/2010 3:35:05 PM
I contacted support and they pointed me to a certain part of the help section. I followed the instructions in that part and everything seemed to go ok, but i still have the same problem: Nothing happens when i click on the link on the website for launching the program.

same thing with me for step 1, any tips?

hi, try download the software from link on uworld website launch. once you finish download, double click it, when another window appears that you do not have program to open the file, click browse, c:/program files/java/jre7/bin/javaws.exe (with or without .exe) and open, press ok to all the windows.
it fixed with me, i'm using intel core i3, window 7, pc.

hope it helps

Hello,

I know this post is a few years old but I thought I would add input for any poor soul who may be experiencing this frustration as I was this morning.

I was having this same problem, I updated my Java, verified it was working however when I would attempt to download the UWorld software off the world website it would not allow me. Like nothing was happening, no popup, no alert, nothing. The problem I was experiencing is that my Mac wasn't allowing me to download any non-apple affiliated program.

The way I fixed this was by going to my downloads folder (this can be found on your web browser in the upper right hand corner - it's the icon of downward arrow). Click on the icon and then look for your file, it should be the first one, and click on the little microscope to the right of it, this will bring you to your "finder folder." Once in the finder folder I right clicking on the downloaded file and selecting "Open with Java Web Start" and that allows Mac to make an exception and download the program.

I have a Mac OS X 10.9.5

I hope this helps someone!

Thank you so much- this fixed my problem! I am running on Windows 10. One note to others- your Java might be stored in "Program Files (x86)" if you're having trouble finding it in "Program Files."

(Thank you for this additional note. "Program Files (x86)" and then finding "javaws" was a lifesaver for me. So much frustration, but now it works.)
