i did dl the latest java yes, not sure if I have to re boot computer. this may sound silly but does the fcb need to be hooked up to actually see the editor or not get an error message when starting the editor? I know the axe editor will start on own.
Just spent three days reading the FCB manual, but found this:

This is my preferred way, because I can do it live. Mucho thanks to Voes.
