Hello,

While trying to install jdk(not just jre) , I'm getting Error: no `server’ JVM at … jvm.dl error.
After googling I found out the below solution :-


There is a little trick to get the server JVM up and running:
1.Copy 'server' folder from the JDK's JRE's bin folder (example: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0\jre\bin\server)
2.Paste the 'server' folder to JRE's bin folder(example: C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin)
3.Done



What I don't understand is that why I need to install JRE separately as well (Step 2) as JDK also includes JRE.

Please advise.

Thanks.

But it's strange that you get that error while installing the JDK.

Are you using Windows? What version, and is it 32-bit or 64-bit? And are you installing a 32-bit or a 64-bit JDK and / or JRE?

Hi Jesper,

I'm trying to install Java EE SDK 6 after installing Java SE 6 Update 24.
My m/c is Win 7 , 64 bit.

But when I try to install SDK, an error shows up saying that it could not find Java 2 Runtime Environment.
If I check my version details on Java.com it suggests me to install Java RE.

If I install Java RE separately in addition to JDK, then I'm able to install EE as well.

Hey Jesper,

I think Java EE installation is looking in default locations for any Java RE/jdk and as I've customized my jdk location,
It's not able to get it.

Did you install a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of the JDK? (Both of them work on 64-bit Windows).

Oracle actually has two versions of the JVM: the client version and the server version. As far as I know, the 32-bit version of the JDK / JRE does not contain the server JVM; only the client JVM. On the 64-bit version, the server JVM is the default. It looks like the Java EE 6 SDK you are trying to install is looking for the server JVM.

You could try installing the 64-bit version of the JDK.
