arduino.exe won't start

I’m just starting with an Arduino Uno R3 and I can’t get the arduino.exe to start. Program brings up the graphic showing “An open project written by…” but then never proceeds further.

My system is Windows 7, 64 bit.

I’ve reviewed the troubleshooting guide and don’t see anything related. I’ve also reviewed some other websites and forum posts that mention similar problems, but none of their solutions (running as admin, disabling visual themes) work for me.

I’ve attached the launch4j.log file.

Can't download your log, but maybe this solves your problem:,118440.0.html

Thanks - that worked. I have the IDE up and running.
