I have a user who get the following error when they start SD: Unable to start the application - The class files could not be loaded. Catastrophic failure.
He is on WinXP SP1 and has been working perfectly OK in the past. I have seen the error before and whatever I do, just cannot shift it, uninstalling/reinstalling fails, have removed reg entries and reinstalled the JavaVM to no avail. Have also run vainly run the batch files under prog files\common files (Software GridEx Shared, Software FX Shared), again to no avail. Has anyone got a solution that doesn't involve me rebuilding the machine?
About your current issue, did you reinstall Microsoft Java VM or Sun JVm. You should reinstall the first one.
Another try would be the following. Did you do an upgrade from 4.0 to 4.5? If the answer is yes, please have a look at the ZIP files in c:\winnt\java\packages and open all ZIP files to see if you find folders like com\hp\ifc.... and remove this ZIP file.
Hi Did you install all necessary components: 1. Java Runtime Enviroment \Tools\Jre\j2re-1_3_1_03-win-i.exe 2. Microsoft Java Virtual Machine \Tools\msjavx86\MSJavx86.exe 3. Microsoft Data Access components \Tools\mdac\mdac_typ.exe - in your case I would check this one especial
Did you try to delete user cache folder - "C:\Documents and Settings\(user name)\Application Data\Hewlett-Packard" ?
