Hi - running Fiddler Web Debugger (v4.6.2.0) on W7 64

1) Running a java app (can download q.jar file here)

2) I set proxy in Java control panel:

Control Panel>Java>General>Network Settings:
Use Proxy Server:
Address: (or localhost)
Port: 8888

3) I launch q.jar (double-click in Windows Explorer) which gives me a java warning message that the app cannot connect to the web server.  This is normal (the web server was taken down a few years ago), so I am trying to use fiddler to redirect to my local server.

But I cannot get fiddler to capture the traffic to get the needed config info for redirection.

Could anyone please help me?

Thanks -
