Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

After doubleclicking Mix2Stix.jar: Why does my operating system ask which program to open JAR files with?

Probably, you haven't installed a Java Runtime Environment. Since this is required for running Mix2Stix, please download it from here and install it.

After doubleclicking Mix2Stix.jar, my ZIP program starts - how do I start Mix2Stix?

Since JAR files are archives, they are often assigned to a ZIP program - which shows their content, but doesn't execute them. Go the the ZIP program's settings and remove its assignment to JAR files.

Why does Mix2Stix not load my last settings on startup?

Mix2Stix stores its confguration in <Mix2Stix directory>/mix2stix.conf. This file probably doesn't exist or may be damaged. Delete it, if existant, and try to save your settings again.

I get an error while trying to save my settings - why?

Check if sufficient access and write rights are given to the Mix2Stix directory. At school or work, ask your friendly administrator.

The program sources look ugly!

The latest Mix2Stix version is from 2017 - I was quite a rookie back then! The code is working, but it surely doesn't look great on the inside. I plan to completely rework Mix2Stix in the future.

Any more questions? Let me know!
