Actually I did. When I installed 1.5 and changed my paths to where 1.5 was install, 1.6 was still the version of Java being used. This was even after reboots. So I decided to uninstall 1.6.

Thanks guys for looking into this, I'll be sending in the error report to Java today.

Needed to uninstall 1.6 to install 1.5. I ran it from the command line as

java -Xmx1272m -jar saxon9.jar -o temp/temp.xml doNotDelete/keep.xml
and separately
java -Xmx1272m -jar saxon8.jar -o temp/temp.xml doNotDelete/keep.xml

both crashed my computer.

So uninstalled 1.5 and reinstalled 1.6. Ran the above and saxon8 no problem
but saxon9 this time crashed the computer.


fyi - you don't need to uninstall / re-install different versions of
Java, just use the the full path to the executable instead of the
"java" shortcut eg:

C:\program files\java\jre6\bin\java -jar saxon9.jar

C:\program files\java\jdk1.6.0_10\bin\java -jar saxon9.jar

If the space casues problems, use its short version "progra~1" or put
the whole thing in quotes.

You can type "java -version" to see which version is used when you
type "java" on its own, and then to change that modify your PATH or
set it in the Java control panel.
