ASDM Launch Issue

When I tried to open ASDM by using ASDM Launcher, I got an error saying can't read configuration. I could open it on another computer, but I got the error on my laptop. I used the same version of ASDM and both have the same version of Java.
I have tried to do as follows:
1) Find the asdm-launcher.config file (C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\ASDM\asdm-launcher.config)
2) Right click, choose properties and remove the 'read only' check
3) Open the file and add the following line:
javapath c:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_07\bin\client\jvm.dll
4) Save the file and replace the read only check

However, I got the Launch failure saying Unrecognized directive 'C:\Program'

What was causing this problem?

Hi Tech110,

Two thoughts:  First, it looks like unrecognized directive C:\Program is probably expecting quotations around the file path.
Second, I have run into this before with using certain updates of java runtime.  Try rolling back to a different update, or updating to the latest.
