Problem instaling community edition

I am getting error while installing the file VP_Suite_Windows_1_1_20050204.exe, please seee the attachment for the exact error message.
I am using XP Pro with latest updates

Does this software has any prerequisites?

I am not sure but seems like it require some java software to be installed and some environment variables to be set

please help me in this regard

thank you

Hi dev2dev,

This is an install4j error. I would assume that you would need at least a Java Runtime Environment to use the installer. No special environment variables are required for installing our software.

Hope this helps


Hi martyn,

Thanks for your reply,
Today I tried to install in my win2k server, but I get the same error, so I tried to install prior versions of VP-UML 20031115a build, which has installed and running sucessfully.

I saw in the Info tab of About Dialog box which is showing me that my system has JVM 2.

Please see the attachment of my prior post, you may get some idea

and also

I am dumping the contenets of Info tab which this software collected

Hi dev2dev,

I could not see anything wrong with your JVM. Maybe you could try updating it to a later variant of 1.4.2 to say _07.


Hi martyn,
I am told by Mr Jick that the problem could be in the mirror site from where I have downloaded, He asked me to download again from the other mirror site, but not sure that reloves, but I am going to try after few days, till then I will use the version 3.
