I have a dual install of Window ME and Window 2000. Java works on Window ME. What do I need to do to run java on Window 2000 platform?

One thing you need to do is to set your path and classpath in the environment variables.

Do you mean, I am just curious, JVM is platform-independent (i.e interWindows-independent)?
I am recalling that my organisation used "to install Java" separately on dually-booty PCs, exactly with Windows2000 and Windows ME!
So, Don, had it worked?

Dear Guennady:
I thought Paul had asked you to leave. I don't have an answer for you. Sorry.
I agree. Here's the link:
