Would love to help with this, can you give me more information about your system? What operating system are you running? What Java version do you have installed? And what version of the offline SARTopo are you running?

Ok. No worries we'll just have to do a little more trouble shooting. Just to ensure you're on the most recent release of the SARTopo product I'm going to have you do two things. First download/update Java (currently JDK 13 is available: https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk13-down...) Update here to the newest version. Then if you have not yet successfully run offline SARTopo you can delete the entire folder that contains the files and re-download from: https://caltopo.com/offline/app?id=B997K1 just to ensure you have the most recent release. At that point lets try the same thing and let me know what happens.
We'll get it working for you for sure, sometimes this part can be a little fickle.

You have to be logged in to download it. To get there from the home page go
to the top left corner of the screen with your email account, click on the
email address and I'm the window that pops up you'll see a tab (last one)
that says offline access, click the and get the app link.

Apparently in some newer versions of Java they don't always add themselves to the command path. There are instructions here to add Java to the command path, follow the directions starting at "To set the path variable on Windows"

Ok. Next step would be to open a command prompt (Typically, Start, Run, and type cmd). Use cd foldername to move to the folder you have the offline application in. Once in that folder use this exact command.
java -Dsarsoft.properties=sar.properties -jar sar.jar
