Unfortunately I have no experience with running Greenstone on Vista. On
XP it automatically finds JVM and no additional settings are needed.
Are there any error messages that you get when you try to install/run
Greenstone? Can you run other Java programs? Perhaps someone from the
list has some ideas?
