That's why a registry is not a good thing ;)
Run the jar from the command line - should work as your java invocation works

DirSyncPro.exe is a   Windows executable I just double clicked this

Are you suggesting ignoring the java error and running dirsyncpro.jar from the same folder?

Yes. If it's been done properly, it should work with

java -jar dirsyncpro.jar

Open in new window

Hi Running the jar file as suggested works

Are you suggesting ignoring the java error or do I need to deal with it?

No you don't need to worry. If necessary, just write a batch file to start it or you can create a shortcut with the correct command.
It could be the exe wrapper that's faulty, rather than the registry itself
