Hello everyone!

I recently started getting a Java error message. A box pops up with the heading: "Application Error" Then inside the box with big bold letters is: "General Exception" Below that comes the message: "Name: HB_Applet " and then below that is:
"java.lang.NullPointerException: null pData"

I do not know what is causing this or how to solve it.

I can provide a screenshot of the error message if it will help! I did not know how to add it into the post.

Whatever pData refers to is set to null; ie, the pointer is pointing to a null. The application is trying to use some data structure that has not been properly initialized.
