  • does that file exist? C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\lib\i386\jvm.cfg and do users have read and execute rights to it?
  • The file does exist. I only got that error on a few machines. It did not happen with every workstation.
    • if it is reoccuring, try putting a blank file named that in the directory. looked at the file on mine and only contains a statement on how to configure it
  • That error is one of the symptoms of a corrupted installation of Java. This is usually caused when the install is done silently and either IE or another browser is open. To fix it you have to uninstall Java then reinstall it from the Java website using the EXE. If you normally deploy Java silently you'll nee to make sure the user is logged before installing, like deploying following a reboot.
