Error in opening console client for SD 4.5

I am getting the following error when I try to open the console client for SD 4.5.

"Unable to start the application - the class files could not be loaded.
Catastrophic failure"

Please let me know what should I do? Thanks for your support.

Check the following document;

If you cannot access it, here are the details.

This issue only occurs if there is a problem with the Microsoft Java Package Manager.

The solution is to:
* MANUALLY uninstall Microsoft Java Virtual Machine
* Reboot
* Re-install Microsoft Java Virtual Machine from the SD 4.x installation cd

Here are the detailed steps:

A- MANUALLY uninstall JVM

WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that might require reinstalling the operating system.

To manually remove and reinstall the VM components:

Click Start, click Run, type regsvr32 /u msjava.dll, and then click OK.

Remove the following keys from the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Java VM
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Code Store Database\Global\Namespace\Java Packages
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\Software\\Microsoft\\Internet Explorer\\Advanced
Click Start, click Shut Down, and then click Restart in MS-DOS mode.

At the Windows prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:

cd %windir%
deltree java (press Y when prompted to delete the folder) rd /s java in Windows NT 4.0
ren setdebug.exe
ren clspack.exe
ren wjview.exe
ren jview.exe
ren jautoexp.dat
cd system or system32 for NT
ren javaprxy.dll
ren javacypt.dll
ren msjdbc10.dll
ren vmhelper.dll
ren jdbgmgr.exe
ren javasup.vxd
ren javaee.dll
ren javart.dll
ren msjava.dll
ren msawt.dll
ren jit.dll
ren dx3j.dll
ren javaperm.hlp
ren javasec.hlp
cd inf
ren java.inf

NOTE: The computer should restart and the following error message might be received:

Cannot find a device file that may be needed to run Windows or a Windows application.

The Windows registry or System.ini file refers to this device file, but the device file no longer exists. If this file was deleted on purpose, try uninstalling the associated application using its uninstall or setup program.

If still wanting to use the application associated with this device file, try reinstalling that application to replace the missing file.

Press a key to continue
This error message is expected. Press a key to start Windows.

B- Re-install JVM from SD4.x CD
