I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with Java 6 (update 31) 64-bit. I am trying to install the following application:

AndroidScreencast
(androidscreencast.jnlp)

per steps from this website:

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/42491/how-to-remote-view-and-control-your-android-phone/

When I ran "javaws <jnlp file>" in the command prompt, i got the following error message:

Unable to launch the application

Clicked on Details, and got this:

InvalidArgumentException[ Invalid arguments supplied: {file>, <jnlp }]
      at com.sun.javaws.Main.launchApp(Unknown Source)
      at com.sun.javaws.Main.continueInSecureThread(Unknown Source)
      at com.sun.javaws.Main$1.run(Unknown Source)
      at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

Please help.

Thank you

Probably  you litterally ran that:

javaws <jnlp file>


But <jnlp file> should be reaplvce by real .jnlp file


like this:

 javaws file_name.jnlp
