When I try starting a particular Java based program that was recently upgraded, it gives me an error which says: An exception occured in the JVM. Detail - java.lang.ClassFormatError: Unknown constant tag 0 in class file sun/awt/image/FetcherInfo. Then below it is another error that says: Failed calling Java method! Method name: main. Can someone please explain to me how to go about troubleshooting this?
