Rater than double clicking te batch file run it directly from a commas prompt to see the error. It may require elevated access. If so you should be able to right click te shortcut and run as administrator.


I tried to run the batchfile as adminitrator with the right click but same thing, cmd window appears for a fraction of a second, goes and nothing happens.
I also tried to drag the batchfile to a cmd window and hit enter, see post below.
Any ideas?

'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.



Add the bin folder of the jdk into the path variable.

I am not sure I know what you mean.
I added the location of the java bin folder to the path variable as following these instructions Click Here, but same old, program not running.
This is the path I added: **;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre\bin**
or do I have to add it to the batch file? If so, could you give me a sample, as I am not familiar with the slachs and dashs and semicolons.
The text of the batch file is: java -cp jpedal.jar;itext.jar;swing-layout-1.0.jar;vldocking_2.1.4.jar;forms.jar org.pdf.forms.gui.VLFrame


Are you sure the path is correct? What java version do you have?

Edited by scudzilla


the thing is when i fiddle within the guts of programs or the operating system I am not sure of anything, I just follow the instructions somebody else has found out.

Anyway, the Java version is 32bit (build 1.7.0_04-b22) and it is located in the program folder
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javaw.exe

I don't know if there is a conflict between the Java 32bit and Windows7 64 bit?


This is what you added to the path variable:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre\bin

This is what you're supposed to add:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin


I be damned, that's it, it works, I can't beleive, I was just about to give up and throw myself out of the window, you saved a live. thanks a lot for your help!
