Hi Alexander,

Thanks for looking into this. Indeed Java 6 is not installed on my 
system currently.

Do you have a suggestion on how to work around the issue, without asking 
the users to either install Java 6 or change his keyboard layout? Maybe 
a setting, or by using reflection? As mentioned it works fine when 
running the jar directly, so maybe there’s a way.

Regards, and thanks,
