I have a dll called isapi_redirect.dll, I trying to see if there is any way in Java to read the Dll version for some validation?
Is there a work around or a hack to read the dll version?.
I Google it and did not find a direct way of doing it. There are third party tool that let you read the version..
Any suggestion? tryng to write a junit test.

I think that you have Oracle middle ware/components installed on the E drive, and the system is using the JRE that comes with oracle, just take the Oracle Path away to see what will happen;

Multi booting OS’s can have wired problems.
I did this on windows 2008.

I would think when you logon to the windows 7 machine, you would go to the control panel/ system /Environment Variable
Check if the JAVA_HOME is defined and what value it has.
Check the path variable and verify that no Java point to the C Ddrive.

How did you set the path variable? make sure that there is no overlapping, system will pickup the first parameters in the path.

No, just joking, carry on with the Java!

You are a piece of ART, why waste your time here, you should be a comedian.

Thank you for the quick response
Yes I will put future code in code tags.
The issue that I having, there is no console output or print out from the command line when I run the program that I provided.
Yes there is an output when I execute this portion of the code.

but once I add the -version there is no output, not sure why, is locking or what ?
The provided solution by Peter Taucher seems to be working fine, thank you, but I thought it is an overkill for what I'm trying to do and that is writting simple junit to check for the java -verison.
At least now I have a solution that I can use.

How can I make this program work ? thanks I can not do java -version and guessing the space is producing an issue

public class TestExec {
public static void main(String[] args) {
String[] command = new String[4];
command[0] = "cmd";
command[1] = "/C";
command[2] = "java";
command[3] = "-version";
try {
Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command);
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(
new InputStreamReader(p.getInputStream()));
String line = null;
while ((line = in.readLine()) != null) {
} catch (IOException e) {
