Many Java erros under Windows 7 using "Windows 7 basic" theme.
2 views (last 30 days)
If I set the windows 7 desktop theme "Windows 7 Basic", matlab opens with "Error Starting Desktop" windows listing many Java errors (java.lang.NullPointerException".....) But instead if I use "Windows Classic" theme it works fine! I am using Matlab R2007a.

Matlab 2007a does not support Windows 7. The workaround to disable the Aero-Desktop is sufficient, but there is no workaround for this workaround.
I run Matlab 6.5 in a Virtual PC under XP/32. While I assume, that Matlab itself would run (with enabled compatibility modes and without Aero), the license manager crashs efficiently.

Have you tried turning off UAC? MATLAB could be trying to write somewhere where Windows thinks it shouldn't be? As a quick experiment, see if running it as Adminstrator makes a difference (right-click on icon, Run As Administrator)
Also if you google on this I know there are a few threads on cssm regarding what people have done.
I get the same think and I am using the latest b version with windows 7 . I am not sure why but it seems to happen when I have a for loop that has been running after a few hours I get this. It is really annoying because I have to stop and restart.
I also noticed that it tends to happen a lot when I am running something else java related. I use logmein and it seems to happen everytime I use logmein, I am not sure the connection. I just turned my windows 7 to classic and disabled user account control and will let you know if it fixes.

I disabled user account control, went to the windows classic scheme and same problem. As soon as I remoted into my computer via logmein it caused all sorts of java errors in the matlab command window. Not sure why but something with logmein causes matlab to go crazy.
