This can be hidden by checking the properties on the link.  Might have to create a shortcut to link and set properties on that.

This is a windows-ism that we haven't yet figured out how to adjust in our installer.

Meanwhile, have deployed and update.

The checkmark suite of validation tests now works in the standalone application, but was only partially improved in the Netbeans plugin version.  Debugging continues.

Nice upgrade:  Terry N. has improved Xj3D yet again, in addition to the latest version of JOGL (JOGAMP) he has it working in a lightweight glPanel instead of a heavyweight Swing panel.  Grizzled Java veterans probably recognize this issue as originating maybe a decade ago in Java3D... it is an improvement.  Tuning continues.  The Xj3D console (a wavy scroll icon in lower right) tells more of the story:

Test reports welcome.  Have fun with X3D!
