A couple weeks ago I mentioned that I was having trouble with the 3.7-beta2 (2022-12-12).
I was using the latest Java version (18.104.22.168.), but clicking “openrefine.exe” on both the version with and without Java took me to the documentation page. The program thought that I did not have Java installed.
The older 3.7-beta1 version worked fine, however.
Today I tested the 3.7-beta5 and the problem persists in both the version with and without JRE.
The 3.8 Snapshot (26-01-2023) without JRE has the same problem.
However, the 3.8 Snapshot with JRE starts up fine.
