WordBiz ''collapses'' after open; letters ''flicker'' when dragging
Running Wordbiz with 32-bit Vista & with Java installed and freshly updated June 21; after clicking on icon (either startup menu or desktop shortcut) game opens, it ''collapses'' --seems to ''fold down into'' the task bar, and effectively disappears; game will stay up and wil run when I open ''run as administrator'' (all permissions are the same as when run ''normally,'' i.e., not as administrator), but the letter tiles ''flicker'' when I drag in order to drop onto appropriate square.
Both these problems are new, appearing within the last month, despite the game having run flawlessly for three years on this very same machine... Any help with this

I had this same issue on Win-7 machines with 6.1.1 packet tracer. I had to install Java 7.67 32-bit for the browser(IE 11-32-bit even though these are 64 bit boxes) and then uninstall and re-install packet tracer to get the psta player to work. Just installing 32-bit Java did not solve the problem out right. Java 7.65 had issues with running plugins. I had a lab of 30 machines to do this on. I assume 6.1 needs the 32-bit version of Java to run (7.65 or 8.25 32-bit would not work) and this corrupted the install because the psta player did not load. After installing the Java and re-installing PT 6.1 the ptsa player would load and run. You will be prompted to update Java-choose "later"-run and continue when prompted.
The problem is it doesn't recognize Java 7. Install Java 6 (latest version) and it will work. You can have both Java 6 and 7 installed at the same time. As well make sure if you are running a 64bit machine you install the 32bit version of Java (so you will have 4 versions installed). Java 7 32 & 64 bit, Java 6 32 & 64 bit. I had the same issue and solved it this way.
