That means that the Java executable started up, but crashed before it could initialize the runtime. Does it say anything else? – Mike Baranczak Jan 29 '12 at 18:31
    
Yes, does it say anything else? – Daniel R Hicks Sep 5 '13 at 20:21

When i want to run it, I also get that error best solution is to recompile it with the source code (witch is included in the SuperShape2D folder).

You can download a working version from here:Recompiled SuperShape2D (I just recompiled it)

Thanks @user1103589, another dumb question. How do you ultimately create a Windows.exe file, than to install? Or how can you install .jar file? – Ryan Schultz Jan 29 '12 at 19:32
    
How do you mean install the .jar file ? If you mean really installing, and you want .exe's .app's and such. Have a look at Launch4J(link end of post). This is wrapper that create's an installer for your .jar file. Also, it can make your .jar into a .exe . Hope this helps, Arno launch4j.sourceforge.net – hasharc Jan 29 '12 at 19:40
    
Also, a .jar does not need any installation, you just need to install the JVM and then (normally) it would automaticly recongnize a .jar and you just need to double click it to run it. – hasharc Jan 29 '12 at 19:42
