Need help troubleshooting

Hi! I am a new user, trying to install EJSS. I am encountering the same problem with 5.3, 6.0 and 6.01. The first time I open EjsConsole.jar after installing or editing the .EjsConsole.txt settings file, it prompts me to select a workspace directory. Once selected (I use the default /workspace inside EJS's folder), it closes. Subsequently, when opening, it also just automatically closes as well.

The error message is:

Error: Could not find or load main class org.colos.ejs.osejs.Osejs
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.colos.ejs.osejs.Osejs
The program selected is NOT running. Error code=1

I cannot find any info on why this problem may be surfacing for EJS. Could I get some assistance with this?

Edit: It seems to work when I open it from Powershell. No idea why - if anyone can help to explain I would really appreciate it!
