Hi,

Please try going 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
installation.

Also, please note that Greenstone is not yet officially supported on
64-bit Windows so there is likely that you will encounter more problems
even if the above fix works.

Regards,
Sam of Greenstone Team
