    Re: Can't run Olivier's Java programs

    Jim,
    I can't help sort out the Java problem, it is definitely over my head. I can
    only confirm that I am running the program successfully on two different
    PC's, both running Windows XP Home edition. I did find the Sun sight
    somewhat confusing and at first wondered if I had gotten the correct Java
    environment, perhaps that is the confusion.
    Hope you can sort it out, it is a neat little package when you get it
    working.
    Arthur

    I thought I understood computers, but...
    
    I downloaded the correct Sun JRE version and installed it using the Windows
    Installer kernel.  The installation failed once, and then ran fine second
    time.  Window's logs confirm the successful installation.
    
    I unzipped Olivier's package into a custom D: drive directory and ran
    celest.bat.  The DOS window appears.  When I type J/Enter, I get this error
    message: "'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file".
    
    Windows XP Home
    Fast machine, lots of RAM
    
    I tried googling around about installing the Java environment, and I tried
    searching through windows on my machine to see if the Java environment is
    mentioned anywhere, but came up dry.
    
    Internet Explorer's java security settings are on "high", but I can't see
    that affecting a java program running on my machine.
    
    Thoughts, anyone?  Thanks.
