FreeEed F.A.Q.


Q.          My full_pack does not run, says something about Java.

A.          First of all, Java should be installed and on the path. Then set JAVA_HOME. In Windows, go to the control panel, find the "Advanced settings", "environmental variables." Your JAVA_HOME should be pointing to where Java is installed, not to the java.exe itself. So that JAVA_HOME/bin/java.exe would be the path to the executable.
