I am trying to start Circuit Construction Kit DC v3.19 because a bit later than that they made an HTML5 version that starts in a browser, and I want the non-HTML version, the one that doesn't use a browser to open.

I see it's a jar file.

So I start it with java -jar circuitconstructionkitdcen319.jar and it gets stuck here, it just hangs, the bar keeps moving left and right but it never finishes loading.

I found it and downloaded it from http://www.brothersoft.com/circuit-construction-kit-(dc-only)-307097.html

I have tried to run it on two different computers and run into the same problem. One computer runs java 1.8, the other also java 8 / 1.8, from https://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/java_portable Both run into the same problem. So I think people will find the problem easy to reproduce.

Looks like that was just an issue with 3.19 and 3.20 fixed it, and 3.20 is available here


That said, now I can start it,

I see that while the program includes a voltmeter and ammeter, it doesn't even have an Ohmmeter so it's a ridiculously limited learning tool.
