    Hi,

    I'm getting a message, that the Java JRE(6) cannot be found. I'm pretty sure I have one, but there are also a lot of other JREs on my computer (it's a developer machine, so I need them).

    Is there any way to tell owb where to look for the jre? Or do I have to rearrange my path?

    Thanks in advance!

      seems this is a not very frequently read forum... in case anybody notices or even cares, the solution (for me) can be found the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment. If something there is not set up correctly the program won't budge...

      I'm not a developer, just trying the software for my company. I had the same installation problem you identified. You mentioned that things need to be set up correctly. Can you help me out a bit by identifying what needs to be "set up"?

      You forgot to mention which platform.
      My answer will cover windows (XP-pro SP2).
      Your a victim of the update policy of Java or more the lack of it.

      There's only one solution.

      - Uninstall all updates
      - Uninstall Java
      - Check if all java objects are gone from IE

      Go to: http://www.java.com and reinstall Java again.

      As soon after announcement of an update:

      - refuse
      - java uninstall
      - download java and install again

      Follow this procedure until they see the light and figure out a real updateservice.
