I am running JDK 1.3 in a Windows NT machine. I am getting an EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION error when running my programs as a user, not when I am in Administrator mode. The error happens when I am trying to add a new JButton component to the ContentPane of a Window. The actual error looks like this (Dr. Watson): An EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION exception has been detected in native code outside the VM. Program counter=0x502032cf I know this is more of a Windows question rather than a JAVA question, but both are related here. Any suggestions on how I can get rid of these messages? Ed.
