I downloaded this code from Head First Java. But when I tried running it on Eclipse, it gives this error message. Please help.
and this was the error message: Jan 02, 2015 8:10:36 PM java.util.prefs.WindowsPreferences <init>
WARNING: Could not open/create prefs root node Software\JavaSoft\Prefs at root 0x80000002. Windows RegCreateKeyEx(...) returned error code 5.

As Google suggests, manually creating the Prefs key under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\JavaSoft should do it.

The code won't compile. You haven't copied it right. You have missed out a { at the beginning of the play method.
