java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError

I'm running on a Mac (10.9.4) and can't launch Stencyl.
I get an error saying: Cannot launch Java application. Uncaught exception in main method: java.lang.ExceptionInInitialzerError

I've uninstalled/reinstalled both Stencyl and Java (7.67). Rebooted several times. No luck.
Having researched this post: http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,11290.msg67966.html#msg67966
I couldn't find anything helpful (2 years old).

Any one else having this problem? Solutions?
Thanks in advance,

Which build are you using?

Please try from the command line (Terminal app): cd to your Stencyl directory, then run
Code: [Select]
java -jar sw.jar

Thank you, Captaincomic.
I'm using Build 7305 (Stencyl 3.1)

When I launch from the terminal I get the same error.

Do you also get a stack trace, i.e. some additional info about where the error comes from?

No, nothing else (that I can see).

And nothing in the Terminal window, where you typed the command?

You can also try with the latest private release. There's a good chance that this has been fixed already.

Well, that seemed to do it!
Many thanks, captaincomic!!

ps. There was nothing more in the terminal window.
