You need Java installed on your system.

Go here (http://java.sun.com) to download it for free.

Btw, I moved this to the computers forum where it is more applicable.

You may already have it installed on your system if you use MS Internet Explorer.

Click Tools...Internet Options...Advanced Tab...Look For Microsoft VM...Click Java Console, Java Logging...Restart

If you don't see this then you will need download.

Don't waste your time with Microsoft's JVM. It is a bastardized implementation that cost them over a billion dollars to settle with Sun Microsystems for their deviance from Sun's licensing terms and breaking compatibility with Java standards.

Get the real thing from Sun at the link I posted above, which is guaranteed to work properly.

Speedman, I get the feeling you really despise M$ and all things associated with the company. Oh well its just an observation. Personnaly I switched from IE to firefox a few weeks ago. I really like the fox.

What I despise is people and companies who are rewarded for breaking the rules and flooding the market with inferior products.
