I'am getting message "Abnormal Program Termination" whnever I try to compile a java file using "javac" command.
The operating system is windows XP home and JDK1.2.1
Is there any way to get around this?

I recommend a more recent JDK. There's not much reason to use 1.2.
I think there might be something more to the story causing the issue. You can't just blame XP Home (I use it myself). M$ isn't THAT evil.
