I am working on windows2000 pro and using jdk1.3
It was working absolutely fine till I installed Oracle 8i on my machine.
After installing oracle when I execute my class file I get the error.
 
Failed reading value of registry key:
        Software\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\CurrentVersion
Error: could not find java.dll
Error: could not find Java 2 Runtime Environment.

What should I do to correct this.

Move to JDK1.4.2 at the same time (if you can) :-)

You could have a look to see if there any ways you could fix this through Oracle's config. AFAIK it has its own Java runtime which may have interfered with your settings.

You are right CEHJ.
I uninstalled jdk1.3 and installed jdk1.4 as objects and jimmack suggested.
But now oracle is not working.When I try on to oracle I am getting the message
Shared realm memory realm does not exist.
Oracle not available.

May be that your db server is not starting up, try starting it to determine the cause.
COuld be a PATH issue, so check that.

More likely to be a windows env issue than an oracle config issue, as the reinstallation of the jdk would not have affected the oracle config.

Yes Objects the DB server is not starting because the memory its taking in the is very little.
But how do I start it up.
