The .exe-files of the Automic utilities only show a splash screen and then close. No log is created. The Automic utilities are executable through the .bat-files, though.
Resolution of parameters in Java 1.7 has changed
First of all change the command of how to start the utility in the corresponding .ini-file. The "-jar xxxxxxx.jar" parameter must be place at the very end, if you use Java 1.7 or above.
Example: cmd="C:\Progra~1\Java\jre6\bin\javaw" -Xmx512m -cp .;.\UC4LookAndFeel.jar -jar ucybdbcc.jar
If you use the template .ini-files of the downloadable Automic-Image the parameters are already adapted.
Furthermore you can try to use the explicit path to the used Java version, by replacing "javaw" through the path to your desired Java release. For example: "C:\Progra~1\Java\jre6\bin\javaw" - please note that the abbreviation "Progra~1" stands for the first directory starting with "Progra" which is normally "Program Files". If you use "Program Files (x86)" then you would have to use "Progra~2".
