Folks, this sounds like a permissions problem or corrupted JVM (Java Virtual Machine). It's hard to tell what's the precise cause without additional information.

You may want to try reinstalling your Java Runtime (from http://java.sun.com).

Try the JVM test on the Sun Java web site:
http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml

What does this test report?

I uninstalled JAVA,
then reinstalled it (Java 6 update 5)

I tried the test : The JVM is correctly installed and functions correctly !

I removed and reinstalled Java as well. I actually downloaded and installed the last beta version of Vue w/o any errors. I then attempted to install 2.1 over the beta and got the JVM error. It must be something between the last beta and final release?

I think Kevin is right : I also have a beta version which turns right !

I too have this problem (XP Pro). Having seen these comments, I will wait for a fix before doing anything else. Or maybe try the Linux version.

Have you tried downloading and running the VUE jar directly without going through the install process? You can get it from our nightly builds site:
http://releases.atech.tufts.edu/vue/

I am curious as to whether this is an installer problem or a VUE issue. We are using a third party installer tool (InstallAnywhere)...

Just an update... The latest VUE installer available from the VUE web site is packaged with an updated JVM. Please try it and let us know if it resolves your issue. Also, we have a special version of the installer which generates additional debug information. You may want to try it as well:

Hi,
I juste downloaded the last updatye of Vue (2.1.34) from http://releases.atech.tufts.edu/vue/
I extracted the executable file and replaced the executable in the Vue folder :
And now I have a functionnaly soft !!

Thank you very much !

So it seems to be an install problem and not a vue issue.

I am glad it worked out. In general, VUE works just fine when run directly from the JAR without being installed. However, you don't get the benefits of file extension associations, heap size optimization, icons, etc if you go that route.

I have newly installed VUE on XP Pro without problem.
However, I was surprised that it reported installing Java as I already have Sun's JRE.

VUE comes with a JRE (1.5.x) which gets installed and used by VUE when you run it through the VUE icon (vue.exe). This is independent on the default JRE on your machine, which is not affected by this.
