    No, if the executable can't be found, it's the PATH that's the problem. You need to add the Java bin directory to the system path.

    For example, on my Windows XP system PATH, the Java entry looks like this:


    You might also like to set JAVA_HOME to the Java directory (e.g. C:\dev\Java\jdk1.5.0_12).
