Hi Zijian --

This is probably the result of the Java update, which was reported last 

John has send out a note about how to downgrade back to a functional 
version which I'm appending below.  Please try this out -- and email 
coral at snf if this does not work for you.

Probably the safest thing to do is to open your control panel, go to
"Add/Remove Programs" and remove Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_14.

Then you can go to:

There .... partway down will be entry named JDK/JRE - 6 that has an
option labeled "6 Update 13".  Click the "Go" button next to it.  That
will take you to a page where you can download either JDK 6u13 or JRE
6u13 (which are the "Java Development Kit" and "Java Runtime
Environment", respectively).  You only need to select JRE 6u13.
