          Hello,

          You should install a newer java version, like java 1.6 update 38 and then add it's path to the system PATH environment variable. After that if you enter again the java -version command it should prompt the new java you just install.

          In the case you already have install a newer java version you should only add it to the path.

          The path you should add to PATH variable must be something like:

          JDK:
          C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_38\bin

          JRockit:
          C:\Oracle\jrockit-jdk1.6.0_37-R28.2.5-4.1.0\bin

          As you are trying to install Weblogic i recommend to use JRockit since it gives a better performance.

          Hope this helps you :)

          Regards
          Carlos

              Hi,

              i did the same as you said, i.e i add this path to the PATH variable C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0

              add the bin directory to this path, so you should have
              C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0\bin
              test it in the command prompt with java -version and it should prompt you java 1.7

              also be sure the generic jar is not corrupted.

              and one more thing you should use this command to install with generic jar:

              java -jar wls1211_generic.jar
