For some issue in Java I need Eclipse to identify Microsoft jvm because that application can only be run with Microsoft JVM.

I downloaded jvm executable from net and installed .

But I don�t know what to do next I could not understand what the name of this JRE is and its installed location in the system , only

Thing that I can see is in C:\WINNT\System32\jview.exe is there

Tell me where the remaining is installed.(like bin and rt.jar ) and is it needed to set these things in classpath

The compiler is installed only with (and inside) Visual J++, which is end of line and no longer on sale or supported.

Follow the advise on Microsoft's website and port the application to the Sun JVM.

You can get a .zip with all the classes the MS JVM uses by running "clspack -auto" at the command line. The output will be classes.zip will be in one of these directories, depending on your OS version:

C:\Windows\java\classes
C:\WINNT\System32\java\classes

This information comes from Stephen Gilbert's guide on using Jikes and the Microsoft VM for development.

that won't help him, as Eclipse won't use the Microsoft compiler which is a 1.1.6 compiler.
Eclipse uses a 1.4.1 compiler (maybe 1.4.2 in current releases) which can sadly not be swapped out for a different version (my one major gripe with Eclipse actually).

So he needs a commandline 1.1.6 compiler. Maybe the Sun compiler will suffice if the required libraries can indeed be extracted, maybe not.
