    Can't run Olivier's Java programs
    From: Jim Thompson
    Date: 2004 Mar 19, 09:01 -0400

    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.
