I am trying to install virtualage java but it comes up with a message saying Environmental space must be increased and Environment variable cannot exceed 255 characters. I typed at DOS prompt c:\command.com /P/E:1024 and in config.sys shell =c:\command.com c:\ /P/E:512 Doesnt work ? What to do? Charu.

Try to increase the E value. Try:
c:\command.com /P/E:8192 and in config.sys shell =c:\command.com c:\ /P/E:8192 It worked for me when i had a similar problem installing the tomcat server on a Windwos ME machine. Migth also work for you. Cheers, Gokhan

Hi Charu, I hope you got VA working ok. Just an FYI, when you're studying, it's much safer to write and compile your code by hand. IDE's optimize alot of code, correcting syntax errors, etc. You may get a clean compile with VA but not with the JDK. As Sun only tests you on what their compiler can do you're much better off using it directly. ------------------ Jane Griscti Sun Certified Programmer for the Java� 2 Platform
Hi, I completely agree with Jane. I'm going for the cert in September and I have both JBuilder 5 and Visual Age installed but it's strictly ' don't open till Christmas !!' I'm learning a whole lot with my trusty notepad the JDK docs and the JDK compiler. The basics/foundation you get typing in your code ( and mistakes ) yourself will serve you well in the future if you are given code to optimize or alter. Give it a shot.

I fully agree with u Terry. Typing programs in the notepad not only indicates ur error prone zones but also a good learning tool for real typing too. - Paddy
