Is java really dumped in Windows 2000? I asked this question because it seems that compilation and running is not working anymore?

Nope, it's not.

Why is not working? can you be more specific? Can you share the errors with us?

I've moved this to the Java In General (beginner) forum. If you could please expain what compilation problems you might be having, I'm sure the ranchers over there will be glad to help.

Same happens with windows XP. I get the error message when try to compile:
AppName: javac.exe AppVer: 0.0.0.0 ModName: symcjit.dll
ModVer: 3.10.0.107 Offset: 0005f974
And forces me to close the application. It asks if I want to send report to the microsfot. I say yes, and it sends. But it never replies me back. Ha ha.
I guess its removed from the (new) windows on purpose. This happens on my newly purchased dell machine. I have installed J2sdk1.4.0 correctly there and set all the paths corretcly too. I have done it many times, so I dont think it is that problem.
Thanks,
Manoj

Well, don't know what you're doing, exactly. There's no symcjit.dll in the JDK. There used to be, long ago, and maybe there still is in Netscape and other tools with an embedded JDK 1.1-era JVM. But the fact that the error is in this file suggests that you're trying to run a very old version of Java that very well might not work on your new machine. You may have multiple versions and something is messed up.

Java works just fine on Windows 2000. However there is a version of "symcjit.dll" running around that causes problems. I ran into it when trying to install the Oracle clients. The easiest solution is to find it and either delete it or rename it to something like "symcjit.dll.bad".
The DLL has to do with the "just in time" compiler and according to the message boards it doesn't play well with the P4 chip and/or Windows 2000/XP. There should be no ill side effects by getting rid of it.

Well Im just trying to use the javac <javafile> its not working even in its own bin directory!
I agree that file "sys*.dll" is a problem in p4 dell machine coz when Im trying to install the Oracle 8i under Win2000 server from the CD I have to copy all the CD file into the PC and from there I rename the "sys*.dll" to different name and then I install the Oracle.
