Hi Jennifer,

I installed Greenstone on Windows 7 here in the lab and it appears to be
working fine. Doing one of the following may help you:

1. Install Greenstone into a location that does not have any spaces or
brackets in the path (e.g. C:\Greenstone rather than C:\Program Files
2. Go to "Control Panel" --> "System" --> "Advanced system settings" -->
"Environment Variables", look through the system variables and if
JAVA_HOME does not exist then click "New...", in "Variable name" type
JAVA_HOME and in "Variable value" type the path to your Java
installation (e.g. C:\Program Files\Java\jre6). If the JAVA_HOME system
variable already exists then make sure it points to a valid Java

Hope this helps,
Sam of the Greenstone Team

Has anyone else got experience in using Greenstone on a Windows 7 OS, and if so, how did you overcome this problem?
