I have a fresh windows 2000 professional installed system on VIA C-III 550 MHz Processor based system. I downloaded J2SE 1.3 as per my needs and installed it on my PC.

Now when I try to compile any java program with the 'javac' command I get the following error:

HotSpot Virtual Machine Error, EXCEPTION_ILLEGAL_INSTRUCTION

Error ID: 4F533F57494E13120E43505002D4

abnormal program termination
Also I get somewhat similar error when I try to run Tomcat.


what might be the problem??? any resolutions???

    What exactly is the VIA C-III?

    The windows JRE requires a "Intel and 100% compatible processor", see... http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/jre/install-windows.html

    And if javac doesn't run then tomcat isn't going to run either.

    You might want to verify your path by using the following...

    1. Open a console window.
    2. type "set PATH=" (nothing after the equals sign.)
    3. Switch to the ...\jre\bin directory
    4. Type "java -version".

    If the step above still gives you an error then something is wrong with your environment (like it just doesn't run on your CPU, or some windows dll is odd.)

    If it does run then, it means something odd is in your path. You can either figure it out or just make sure that the Sun JVM path is the first path in your PATH variable.
