    Help with error message please (xbootclasspath)

    850651
      I have a 32bit system running Vista and the JRE that I did have used to work fine but then it did a few updates and I could no longer use the Java Port Forwarder for remote access to my works network.

      I tried to uninstall and rollback but couldnt get it to work at all.

      In efforts to ammend this as I no longer know which one did work, I have completely removed Java down to registry level and laid in a fresh install of 6u24.

      Alas, when I go to open the Java Control Panel I get this message:

      Java(TM) Control Panel
      C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe
      -Xbootclasspath/a:"C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\..\lib\deploy.jar"
      -Duser.home="C:\Users\Dave" com.sun.deploy.panel.ControlPanel

      OK

      If I navigate to the Jre6 root and try to open javaw.exe nothing at all happens.
      ---------------------------------------- and try to open deploy.jar I get the following;

      Java Virtual Machine Launcher
      Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from
      C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\lib\deploy.jar

      If I try to navigate to the works page and attempt to log on (IE8) then it opens the Port Forwarder screen and hangs.


      If anyone can shed any light onto the issue then I would be most grateful -
      As I am sure I may have missed out many important pieces of info just ask!

      Thanks,
