What errors do you get? Have you tried running the exe or bat from the command prompt? Most likely it's a path issue or maybe you need the 1.4.1 version of JDK. -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Tom Dell'Aringa Sent: Wednesday, July 21, 2004 9:28 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Java/J2EE help - java not working on desktop Hi, I'm currently (supposed to be) evaluating BEA WebLogic 8.1 Portal but I'm having a problem with Java. I figured I'd try this list since I know theres a few J2EE folks out there. What happens is when a Java App launches (or attempts to launch) like the WebLogic installer for example or the Workshop, it never actually launches. Java.exe or Javaw.exe will show up in the task manager, but the app dies somewhere in the ether. I was able to install WL8.1 platform using the console installer, but I can't run the workshop. Any insight on what might be wrong with Java? I'm going to try to find some forums on java.sun.com but I'd figured I give a quick shout out here. I'm running Win 2003 Server Standard. On my hard drive it looks like I have j2sdkee1.3.1 and jdk1.3.1_09. (Note, I'm a java dummy.) Tom ===== http://www.Pixelmech.com/ - read my latest blog posting!
