I have the Windows 98 OS.Have downloaded java 1.4 from the sun web site.I see that that J2EE(TM) SDK 1.4 Developer Release is an executable file which is 116MB.Now after dowloading the same when I try to open the executable I get the following error. J2EESDK-1_4-DR-WINDOWS-EVAL caused an invalid page fault in module MSVCRT.DLL at 017f:780012b1. Registers: EAX=00000006 CS=017f EIP=780012b1 EFLGS=00010206 EBX=00000000 SS=0187 ESP=00550000 EBP=0055000c ECX=004159b4 DS=0187 ESI=8177c848 FS=5797 EDX=7efeff52 ES=0187 EDI=8176de5c GS=0000 Bytes at CS:EIP: ff 35 50 a1 03 78 ff 74 24 08 e8 03 00 00 00 59 Stack dump: 004029b5 00000006 004159b4 0055001c 004029fe 00000006 00000000 00550048 00404cf8 004159b4 8177c848 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
Why does this happen?Where are all the directories which contain the s/w?How do I go about installing Java so that I can start coding. Thanks in advance for the help. Preethi
Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".

You need to download the Standard Edition (J2SE) SDK (which also includes the JRE). I would strongly recommend as a beginner that you download the version 1.4.2_03 and not the beta of v1.5. J2EE (Enterprise Edition), which is what you downloaded, is an "expansion" to the Standard Edition that, as a beginner, you probably will not need to worry about for awhile; even if you did, you must still install the Standard Edition in order to use J2EE. It's a pretty straight forward install; just double click the executable you download. If you need help with the install of the J2SE, search this beginner forum as there are plenty of threads on the subject. You can also look at Your First Cup of Java from the The Java Tutorial at Sun's site. (That in turn has a link to the web page Java 2 SDK 1.4.2 Installation Notes for Microsoft Windows.) This will also help you set your path & classpath variables that you will need to have configured. (You can also search this forum for help with that as there are a ton of threads on the subject). If you are still having issues, post the specifics of the problem you are having and someone will assist you. Oh, and welcome to JavaRanch
