!!!! NOTE: This'll only work if you have a 64bit Windows system !!!!


I FINALLY figured how to get them working on Windows7/Windows Vista (:
BUT FIRST CHECK IF YOU HAVE THE BOX SELECTED TO USE THEM T____T
I got a new pc with Windows 7 and ofcourse, just like I feared, the Shimeji didn't work. I already started panicking, but my dad figured out it didn't work because Shimeji hates 64bit PCs. So this is what you have got to do.
It looks quite difficult, but it's very easy! Just work step for step.

Try getting Quiet from www.joeware.net/freetools/tool… ; put the Quiet.exe into the Gerard/Mikey/Frank/whatever folder and edit the shimeji-ee.bat (right click the windows-batch file, and select edit) copy and paste these commands:


start Quiet.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\java" -classpath Shimeji-ee.jar -Xmx1000m com.group_finity.mascot.Main -Djava.util.logging.config.file=./conf/logging.properties
exit


next just run the .bat file


I hope this helps for you!!

2015 EDIT
I will most likely not be making any updates on these things anymore, ever.
So if they do not work you could try to download one that does work, and replace the images (from img folder)

If it will not open, or show your shimeji for that matter, try  renaming the Actions and Behaviors.  rename them to 動作 and 行動

instead of doing alllll of this!
just install java 6
or try pressing the jar file instead.
I'm using windows 7 64bit and everything works fine!
also did this with a vista.

I did everything correctly, but the issue is that when I try to run the .bat file it says that it can't find quiet.exe, even though it's in the file!

My shimeji won't show up. It acts like it's there (dragging window off the screen and such) but it won't show up. When I try to delete the folder it says:
"This action can't be completed because file is open in Java(TM) Platform SE binary. 
Close the file and try again."
I tried closing it, but it doesn't show up anywhere. (No icon in the icon bar, nothing even in the task manager!)
I believe I've tried everything, and ANY advice would be very appreciated.
Please help!

I know that these questions sound stupid,but
Do you delete the "jre6" command or keep it?
Do you also copy and paste "start Quiet.exe"?

As far as I can tell, I did everything right, but the character just will not appear.
this is getting a bit frustrating, I've never dealt with Shimeji's before...
I downloaded the one I wanted, extracted everything, got Quiet, put it in the file with the shimeji, tracked down where the proper java file was, edited the bat file and ran it... but when I run the program, the character, Pit, just won't fall down. Am I making a rookie mistake, this program works on all Shimeji's right? Sorry to bother you, but I've been haveing a really hard time with this. I've only recently heard of these desktop buddies, and really want one, but it just refuses to work... Sweating a little...

YESSSS, thank you, it finally works~

For those having problems with "Windows cannot find": you will need to substitute the current version of Java for the outdated version above. For example, instead of "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\java" you will need to insert "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_73\bin\java" (current version as of today)

Hope this helps!

This is what i get when i try to launch a shimeji. The registy refers to a nonexistent Java Runtime Enviroment installion or the runtime is corrupted.

The system cannot find the path specified.

So let's say you downloaded the shimeji called Mikey, when you extract the RAR file, a folder will appear (in this case called Mikey, though it will obviously have a different name if you've downloaded a different one). Inside you will see three sub-folders (conf, img and lib) and a bunch of other files. This is where you put Quiet. 

Watching this and reading the comments might help as well.
