I have installed JBuilder7.
Inside JBuilder7 I changed the Jdk to 1.4 which was already installed on my computer.
Running JDK inside JBuilder7 was ok.
However when I tried to use the JDK at the command prompt outside I had a message similar to this:-
Registry file at Software\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment \ CurrentVersion is set to '1.3'. Should be set to '1.4'
I had a looked up the file using command regedit, but couldn't seem to access contents of the file.
Deleting the file didn't seem to do anything either.
Finally I uninstalled JBuilder, and now the JDK works fine.
What is going on? How can I get to run the JDK inside and outside of JBuilder?
Thanks in anticipation,
Con

Hi,
No you cannot. JBuilder is a cripple in term of alter JDK versions. You could download a newer version JBuilder8, it is too also free for low-end version but not free in high-end version.
The Borland trend is whenever they have the new version out to public, the old ones likely to be free. But you do not have access to technical support.
Cheers,
MCao

With JBuilder 7, I seem to recall that I would reinstall Sun's J2 SDK v1.4 after installing JBuilder 7, and then everything would work well again.

In regedit....
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-->SOFTWARE-->JavaSoft-->Right Click on CurrentVersion and Modify and change the value to 1.4...
Hope this solves your problem.....
