Hi Girish/Anyone who could help: I had downloaded WebSphere zip file for Windows NT and tried to install on WinNT v4.0 with Service pack 6a(Hardware:256 MB RAM,40 GB HD). When I try to install I get 3 pop up window error messages: D:\\WebSphere\java\bin\javaw is not a valid Windows NT application D:\\WebSphere\java\bin\javais not a valid Windows NT application and Access to specified devce,path or file is denied. When I click on OK on each of these windows and reach finish and restart computer and WebSphere I again get : Access to specified devce,path or file is denied. I tried removing Sun jdk 1.3 thnking that it might be creating problem but in vain. Could you help? vivek
I also installed the same WebSphere (4.0) over NT sp6 and had no problems. I was logged in using a local administrator account, so maybe as Jim says you need to install the product logged in as a administrator or local administrator. I don't know if the following is silly, but have you noticed that the directories you type have double slash at the beginning ? <pre> D:\\WebSphere\java\bin\javais ^^</pre> maybe has nothing to do, but I'd have a look at the directory where the installer installs the product (logged in as Admin or local Admin).

Thanks Jim and Horaci for responding.But this has unfortunately not solved my problem. I am logging as administrator and have full authority. Here are the errors while installation: First pop up window with header:d\WEBSPH~\APPSER~1\java\bin\java.exe and message: d\WEBSPH~\APPSER~1\java\bin\java.exe is not a valid Windows NT application Second pop up window with header:-INSS5176._MP-Application Error and message: The application failed to initialize properly(0xc0000005).Click OK to terminate application. Third pop up window with header:d\WepSphere\AppServer\java\bin\java.exe and message: Access to specified device.path or file is denied I am puzzled!! vivek
