I can't get the command prompt to stay open.

When I run 'SARTopo-Offline-Java-9-10.bat' or 'SARTopo-Offline.bat', I see a window quickly come up & disappear [i assume it's the CMD window]. Before you ask :) no, it's not hiding behind something or minimized. When I try going to "http://localhost:8080", it just says "This site can’t be reached - localhost refused to connect." What am I doing wrong?

I know someone was having this same problem not too long ago.

    Can you manually open a cmd window, cd to the director SARTopo Offline is installed in, and run:

    java -Dsarsoft.properties=sar.properties -jar sar.jar

    Unfortunately the cmd window started by the launcher closes on exit; doing the above will tell you what the actual error is.
