NetBeans IDE 3.5 does not run

P: n/a
Hi all,

I've installed NetBeans IDE 3.5 on Windows XP. But if I try to start it,
a message box shows "cannot load jvm.dll". This library does exist in
a subdirectory. My questions are:

1) Is NetBeans IDE 3.5 a stand-alone software, i.e. can it run without
other software, or should a java SDK be installed?

2) If NetBeans can run without java SDK, maybe one must set the path for
jvm.dll. How can it be done?
Many thanks!

You need the java SDK installed. The NetBeans IDE is itself a java
application. You can download the latest java SDK from the sun
website:

I think that j2sdk is already installed, because:

1) The file for the installation of NetBeans downloaded from SUN has the name:

j2sdk-1[1].4.2-nb-3.5-bin-windows.exe

which implies that it contains j2sdk and netbeans.

2) The directory structure after installation is:

j2sdk_nb
_jvm
bin
classic (contains jvm.dll ! )
hotspot
server
lib
......
_uninst
netbeans3.5
......

which suggests that J2SDK is installed.

The original error message is "Cannot load jvm.dll". Maybe the path for it
must be set in order that it can be found. How should it be done?
Many Thanks in advance!
