32Bit VI Java Virtual Machine error

Hi all,

I realise the 32bit version of VI is brand new but does anyone know the cause of this error upon launch?

"Failed to create the Java Virtual Machine"

Running on Win 7, 2.67GHz, 4MB RAM laptop. I suspect it has something to do with memory but the machine appears to meet minimum specs from what I can gather.

Thanks,

Glenn

    Hi Glenn,

    1.  Did you install using "Run As Administrator"?

    2. In your Advanced System Properties, Go to Environment Variables > System Variables

    Look for the 'Path' variable. It should include the following values:  C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin

    In the same area, look for the 'JAVA_HOME' variable. It should point to C:\Program Files\Java\jre6

    - Can you confirm?

    3. Also go Control Panel > Java > Java Control Panel > Java tab > View > User > Path.  It should point to C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe .

    - How does it look for you?

    How much memory is available on your machine as you launch? Go to: Task manager > Performance > Physical Memory > Available (MB)

    Regards,
    H
