(Testers Wanted!) VDSL Mini-Challenge Ramdomizing Program
I'm a bit jealous of all the awesome VDSL challenges I've seen lately, but am occupied with one of my rare-but-really-awesome visits with boyfriend.  Compromise!  He made a spiffy little program so I can feel like I'm making progress on the challenge ;)

I introduce to you, the Mini-Challenge Chooser:

Could you do without this?  Absolutely.  But, I like clicking things, and I like sharing, and maybe you like clicking things, so you can randomize and check the challenge and then maybe randomize what sim it applies to with the Sim Selector, all in one place.  (In fact, you can use the Sim Selector to choose between sims for any related or unrelated reason you choose; I won't tell...)  If you format new challenges the same way, you can even import an entirely new set of challenges, such as for the Sims 3 Mini-Challenge list.  Edit: To save you a few steps I've just pasted the Sims 3 challenges in a txt here.  Go File > Open New File > and choose the txt.  To switch back to the default list, just close and reopen the program.

I think its pretty simple and self-explanatory, but there under help there is a glossary, credits, and input file formatting tips if you need it.  You can also post here if you have questions, and if you have trouble you can contact me or talon83636 .

-This program is a .jar and requires Java.
-EP requirements display at the bottom; this program does not ask or automatically detect and filter based on what you have installed.  It was gonna, but it would have been evil to do that and make future challenges importable.
-Tested in Windows 7 and Windows XP only so far. Edit: works in Windows Vista and on Macs, too.

I figured out what the problem was and emailed you about it. (Actually emailed once, then realized what it was and emailed you again with the correct solution). The problem was, I'm assuming, that you set the .jar file to open with "java.exe". By default, .jar files are set to open with "javaw.exe". Changing it causes the error. Changing it back should fix everything.
