7.1.11 PlanAhead - "ERROR: java.lang.NullPointerException"

Description

Keywords: look and feel, theme, swing, winXP

When opening PlanAhead on Windows XP, I receive the following error message:

"java.lang.NullPointerException
at com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows.XPStyle.getString(XPStyle.java:132)
at com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows.XPStyle.getString(XPStyle.java:115)
.
.
."

Solution

This error has been seen in Java applications on some computers after the Windows desktop theme has been altered.

Try resetting your Windows theme to the default:
1. Go to Windows desktop, right-click, and bring up Properties.
2. Go to the Themes tab.
3. Change the theme to Windows XP.

A similar "java.lang.NullPointerException" will be issued for other Java-based applications. Please see (Xilinx Answer 22812).
