I am using the following code to display the Message Box.
On NT it shows up on the top (front) of all screens.
But on Windows 2000, it gets messed up & hides behind
other DOS windows.
I run this app using the command :
start java AppName argument1 argument2
The code is as follows:

JWindow wnd = new JWindow() ;
String message = "Error in \n" + " command line arguments";
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(wnd.getContentPane() ,
message,"Error",JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE) ;;

If I run the same command from the DOS
prompt without using start option, it
works fine. What a frustrating POS!
Would greatly appreciate help from the Java gurus here.
