I’’ installed jive Mesenger in a windows XP prof. for testing and OK…

“No JVM Could be found on you system. Please define EXE4J_JAVA_HOME to point to a installed JDK or JRE”…

Java is installed! (the same version of the winXP machine)

Can you try Jive Messenger 2.1.2? Also, are you using the exe to install the app?


i’’ use: jive_messenger_2_1_0.exe

now i’’ try to install the version thah you says… (2.1.2)…

more later i’’ comment the results…


(exuse my very bad english…) :stuck_out_tongue:

ohhhhh no

The version 2.1.2 did not work either

the same messaje …

One thing to check (and this sometimes matters for other apps but I didn’'t see it with JiveM) …

Do you have a JAVA_HOME variable set up in your system environment variables?

Here’'s mine for example off one of my server boxes…


System Variable Name: JAVA_HOME

Value: C:\Java\JDK\v1.4.2_06

Of course replace this with where you installed it

I am having the same exact issue with the installer. I uninstalled the program and wanted to do a new clean install of the application, and now I get this same error everytime I try to run it.

I also made sure that the JAVA_HOME environmental variable is setup correctly on the computer and it is. In addition I tried adding another one called “EXE4J_JAVA_HOME” that points to the “C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_02” (where Java is installed) too. None of these seem to have an effect.

Any other suggestion are greatly appreciated.


Here are the instructions for properly setting the Java path in Win2k and up:


good luck!

Hey guys,

I put up a new installer in the daily builds section that may correct the issues. It’'s a beta release of 2.1.3, but should be fairly stable.

Let me know if it works!
