Hi,

I downloaded JWS1.2 on my machine, when I'm trying to install it on my
system it is prompting a message "Usage:jinstall<URL of configuration
file>.
I'm not able to understand the problem, please advice.
Thanks

I'm not sure what this is about. Java webstart comes standard with a JRE 1.4+ What are you trying to install? From your post, I can only gather that you are trying to install a very old version of Java webstart from the days when it was not included in the standard JRE installation.

Can you provide some more information about your problem?

Cheers, Jared.
