Spoon.bat was modified to use "java", followed by "pause", but in the terminal window, there are bundleExceptions all over. The U/I screen comes up, but there it doesn't respond to any selection.
What Java version and release are you using?
And what are the changes you did to Spoon.bat so that I can try to replicate the issue.
I found the changes on the download/installation web page. I reverted to the original commands, letting java or javaw be used according to whether or not console was used to launch. I decided to try to run SpoonDebug.bat instead of Spoon.bat. And, also SpoonConsole.bat. What I found was there were many exceptions thrown to the console/text file (see attached), but Spoon eventually came up. Taking close to 5 minutes.
I'm not able to paste any of the SpoonDebug.txt, but here's the first exception:
ERROR: Error parsing system bundle export statement: ... Exported package names cannot be zero length.
the supported Java version is 8. See here for more information Components Reference - Pentaho Documentation .
Please install JDK 8 and give it a try please.
