BMDS Errors on Blackberry Server

I have Blackberry Enterprise Server v4.1.4 (actually it is the free Professional Server), installed on my SBS 2003.
I started getting masive amounts of BMDS errors in the application event log.  Searching the issue, it seems that the current version of java on my computer (v. 1.6.0_24) is not being referenced in the relavent registry key.  Here is the blog post that seems to be the fix:
----------------
BlackBerry MDS was failing because the Java Runtime Environment had changed on that server. I installed the latest version (6.0) and had to modify one of the registry keys.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\BlackBerry MDS Connection Service ImagePath (REG_SZ).

Its hard to see the difference below so here is the summary of it: I replaced "...\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_07\..." with "...\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_01\...".
---------------
My Reg Key refers to  "C: Program FIles\...Java\jre1.5.0_11\..."

There are two Java folders in the C:\Program Files folder:
"Program Files\...Java\jre1.5.0_11\..." : - This has a lib folder in it:
"Program Files\...Java\jre6\..." - This has a bin and the lib folder in it

I changed the registry entry from "...Java\jre1.5.0_11\.." to  "...Java\jre6\..."

I restarted the computer, and my Blackberry was no longer connected and receiving emails.  I changed it back to the original test and the Blackberry was connected, but the BMDS errors were occurring again.

There is a folder in my Documants and Setings folder:
"C: Documents and Settings\Administrator\Applicatino \Data\Sun\Java\jre1.6.0_24"  But this folder only contains a jpeg file.

What is the best way to resolve this?
 - Can I rename the jre6 folder to jre1.6.0_24?
- Can I uninstall Java 6 and reinstall Java 5.1.0_11 (if so, where do I get the download?)

Thanks!

I experience is that you can uninstall all of the old Java versions. Install the latest Java version and make sure you change the service to use the corrrect Java path.

I will try your solution. Since this is a production server, it may take a while before I respond with the results.  It sounds like regardess of where the Java app is installed (e.g. the DOcs and Settings folder), I need to modify the reg key with that path.  Correct?

Yes, they have "hard coded" it into the service registry section. So it must be changed or the service will fail to start.
