Help!!
When I click on the Java Plug-in in my Control panel the following message appears:
"javaw.exe has generated errors and will be closd by Windows.
You will need to restart the program."
I am using WIN2K with JDK 1.3.
Could you give some clues to solve my problem?
Thanks in advance.

You may need to install the service pack that they released to fix Win2000 stuff. Try

What role does the Service Pack play in this case?

Cindy,
Installing the service pack did not solve my problem. Still getting the same error. Bummer.

Not a clue - try asking MicroSoft.

Cindy,
I solved the problem by upgrading to JDK 1.3.1. This solved my javaw problem, but I am still working to get dbVisulaizer working.
Thanks for your help!!

Hello,
I finally solved the problem. Since my last post the dbvis problem has been on the back burner, but today I needed it as I am starting my next project.
The problem was with the display settings on my computer. I forgot to mention in the previous posts that I had a two monitor system. This system was setup for me when I started back in April. When I looked at the display properties, I found the left hand monitor was set for 32 bit color and the right hand monitor was set for 256 colors.
Once I changed the settings so both monitors are the same, DbVisualizer works.
Thanks again for all of your help.
