However.... When I ran it the 1st time, I entered in the path to mame64.exe. It loaded, went through the gathering information process. And everything looks and works fantastic! Without making any [other] configuration changes, I exited the program ("X" in the upper right hand corner), later go to restart it and get an Error:
Code: Select all
An unexpected error occurred while reading configuration file: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: Index 1 out of bounds for length 1 The file Negatron.ini is missing or is badly formatted. If Negatron.ini isn't missing, please edit it, or delete it for Negatron to launch the configuration wizard during next launch.
The ini file I'm sure is fine, but here it is:

(per "About Java" I have v8 (1.8.0_191-b12))
Downloaded Negatron-Win64-0.100.1.zip (and unblocked)
Extracted all files to a temp folder and ran Negatron-0.100.1.msi
Installed to my D drive (no admin restrictions)
I did not install Java v11 or later because the All-in-one pack indicated v14.0.1 portable was included.
I started towards downloading/installing Java 14 and stopped when it said I needed t create a login. (Not that big of a deal, but it's just one more thing .) This is also when I saw v14.0.1 portable was included with the installer.
Is there something I overlooked that may be causing this error? Maybe a conflict between v8 and v14? Do I still need to install v11 or later? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
