All:
- Anyone here install VAJ v3.0.2 on Win XP professional?
- Can you tell me if you were able to do this successfully?
- Any special workarounds/etc to get this to install on Win XP professional?
=========
I am trying to get this to install (our company does not have updated versions of VAJ) on a Windows XP machine (of which I am the 1st person in company to have).
Not sure if my install problems are related to security (within my company) issues or if my install problems lie with compatility between VAJ3.0.2 and Win XP Pro.
Thanks for your help.

Christopher:
- When I go to install VAJ3.0.2 in WinXP-Pro, I cannot get past the first 3 or 4 seconds of the install program.
- The installer says there is something wrong with the JVM. However, I manually installed JDK1.4.1 from javasoft.com and still get the error. Note: I get the same error before and after installing JDK1.4.1 and verifying the JRE is installed.
- I had SysAdmin come on down (he has full system rights) and he gets same errors.
- I have Win XP (for home users) on my laptop - and no problems with the install. But mine is the home user edition and not the pro edition. And in this case - all I did was put the CD-Rom in my drive and did not have to manually install the JDK as it does so automatically with the CD-Rom.
------------
- I know IBM no longer supports v3.0.2 - but our company is running a bit behind (quite a bit behind actually) with the software upgrades.
- Again, any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
John Coxey

I have heard conflicting stories regarding the ability to swap out JDK's in VAJ, but to the best of my knowledge, VAJ will not support a Java SDK later than 1.2.2 This is one reason we're currently in the process of bringing in WSAD and WAS 5.0 into our organization.
Is there anyone out there who has successfully run VAJ with a post 1.2.2 SDK?

No, because it will not work. Anyone who claims otherwise is lying or woefully misled. You can't substitute JVM's in VAJ -- the JVM is too deeply tied into the product.

John,
The fact that you have installed JDK (and may run java/javac from command line/ DOS prompt), has in my experience, nothing to do with IDE or even your browser. Each application installs its own JVM.
I have 4 versions of JBuilder in my PC. Each has its own JDK/JRE, JVM. After installing those JBuilder I was forced to download and install JDK/JRE in Windows XP in order to compile/run from command line. And this is not the end of the story, having installed 5 identical JDK, JRE subdirectories, under each of JBuilder4/5/6Personal, JBuilder4/5/6Enterprise, as well as in under “Program Files” I still cannot run Java applets in MS IE6.0 because my Windows XP does not have VM. Earlier on first need IE connected to Microsoft site and downloaded VM. But since July, Sun prohibited downloads and it is now upgrade through Service Pack CDs. Nice, isn’t it. I don’t quite get why I should have identical JDK1.3.1 subdirectories under directory JBuilder4, JBuilder5Enterprise, JBuilder5Personal, JBuilder6.
To anyone,
I already asked and still would like to be explained about:
1)why it cannot be centralized between applications; IDEs, browsers?
2)How may I install JVM in browser?
