yoyo ummm new at this forum stuff, tryn 2 help, hope this makes sense,
currently i use exe file as batch file, running the command promt info in a c app, then compiling to exe, only prob is u can only run in windows (not even sure about vista) i use dev C++ to compile:
#include <windows.h>shellexecute is nicer, doesnt open any windows as long as u run javaw so looks professional. Hope that helps. i gotta say im impressed with the way tribal trouble runs through a link, packaging a version of the JVM that definetely works with the lwjgl version it uses, download is big but i assume less buggy. on my site i have a windows version of my java apps in exe. Oh and if u dont understand how 2 make ur own custom icon ill try take u through the process message me if u want, but its a step process would take a while 2 write all the steps
