Hi, I downloaded latest versions of jini and jdk on my win98. I tried to run rmid at the command prompt as follows: C:>rmid -J-Dsun.rmi.activation.execPolicy=none When I press enter, I get no message at all, no error/approval. My cursor just keeps blinking. I don't even get the command prompt c:> back. There is just this blinking cursor. My path has the bin directory and my classpath has jini-core.jar,jini-ext.jar and sun-util.jar. Any answers? Thanks
That sounds like correct behavior to me. rmid is just a program that happens to run in perpetuity until it's stopped. Given the way you invoked it, the program is continuously running and therefore using your terminal session indefinitely. I am sure there must be some way to put a Windows process "in the background" as we do in Unix.

You can try this: C:>start rmid -J-Dsun.rmi.activation.execPolicy=none this way, the JVM will start in a new window and you'll get the command prompt back in the former. I don't know whether this is the best way to do it, but it worked for me Good luck!
