    Solution to Windows setup beta1.3.9 error:

    Just run the installer with this command:

    ANtsP2P_Setup_beta1.3.9_p0.7.9.exe LAX_VM "C:\Program Files\Java\bin\java.exe"

    or wherever your java.exe is installed.

    It's a bug in the InstallAnywhere by Zero G Software.

      I'm running Window Vista 32bit, but cannot go beyond this message "windows error 3 occured while loading java VM" when installing.  Has anyone got a step by step to navigate round this?

    Thank you

    I'm sad to tell you that as I can see Ants Project is Dead and GwebCache used it's closed. But If you want you can check it or use it with your friends and rebuild a community.

    To instal do this:

    1)Open the console running CMD
    2)Drag and drop Ants.exe inside window
    3)Leve a space, type LAX_VM and leave another space
    4)Drag and drop Java.exe from installation folder to the console folder and press enter
