I can't run MMOUI Minion

No matter what I try or do, I simply can't open MMOUI Minion.
I tried everything suggested in the FAQ, I even installed Java 6 (32 and 64 bit versions). Uninstalled and installed both Java and the minion several times, tried it with the suggestion of creating a "minion.bat" file, as suggested in the FAQ. I tried everything suggested in the other thread as well, but still no minion. I'm about to get desperate here....

I am running Windows 7 64 bit by the way.

No error at all. I can install it, and once I click the icon on my desktop, I get the hourglass icon for about 5 seconds, and than nothing happens. That's why I find it so weird....

I have to admit, it's never worked for me either, but that was a few years ago I think when I tried to use it. I never gave it another chance, because it just wouldn't work. I couldn't even uninstall it. It error every time I did, so I had to delete it from my registry, use a registry cleaner, and then restart my computer. I no longer have that old computer.

I wish I had a solution for you, but I don't. I just wanted to chime in and tell ya, you're not alone.

I believe it's because Java version 7 is breaking MMOUI Minion. There is supposed to be a workaround by using a previous version but I couldn't get it to work.

Unfortunately we aren't actively developing Minion any more. Sorry guys.

I would assume not, but I'm going to ask anyway. Does anyone have access to the source code for Minion?

That's kind of what I was hinting at, if the previous developer left the source code behind and perhaps it was on the server somewhere. Oh well, there's to hoping. I haven't used it or ever had a need to. I was just wondering if I could be of some help and do what I could. I haven't had any experience with Java, but with the proper tools, good references, and a few days browsing source codes, I can pick up just about any programming language.
