Hi Michael,

I've seen this message in the past, usually when windows gets confused
about what java to use - generally if there has been several versions of
Java installed in the past (especially Java Multimedia Edition). The
easiest thing I can think of is to manually install JVM 1.4 or better,
and see if that fixes the problem.

If it doesn't, email me again I'll see if I can help. It would help if
you could find out what version of java your computer wants to use. Open
a dos windows (Start->Run and then type 'cmd' or 'command' depending on
how old your windows is), and then type 'java -version' and send me the

Good luck,

John Thompson
