While primarily used for killing vampires, a wooden stake to the heart is also highly effective against most other opponents.

I updated Java yesterday and now my Realmspeak won't run. When I click on run.bat I get the error: "Windows cannot find 'javaw'."

Any advice?

I've downloaded realmspeak again, rebooted my computer.

I've considered reverting to an older version of Java but I'm not sure how to do this.

Edit the run.bat file and make sure it points to the location of your current javaw file. It's likely been installed in a different folder.

Here's a thread that discusses the error.

While I understand what you are saying, I have no clue what you actually mean.

When I go to edit my run.bat file I see this:

echo off
@start javaw -mx384m -cp mail.jar;activation.jar;RealmSpeak.jar com.robin.magic_realm.RealmSpeak.RealmSpeakFrame %1


By searching for javaw on my computer, I find it here:

C:\Windows\SysWOW64

Also here

C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin

and here

C:\I386

If one of these is where I need to edit my run.bat file to point to, what should my edited run.bat file look like? Basically, I know I need to edit it, I just don't know what to do.

Thanks!

Edit: Even though I found another solution, I'm still curious about the answer to this question. The information may be handy in the future.

Ok, now that I've had enough to drink, it's starting to make sense. Installed Realmspeak into my windows\syswow64 directory and it works. (I'd read that thread earlier but nothing made sense to me at the time.)

Thanks for your help guys!

Glad you got it workimg. I just put the file path in fromt of the javaw.exe entry like so:


echo off
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javaw.exe" -mx384m -cp mail.jar;activation.jar;RealmSpeak.jar com.robin.magic_realm.RealmSpeak.RealmSpeakFrame %1
