Re: Accessible Java Development Environment

Hi Jay,
Have u tried to install jdk? I was unable to install - it's a windows
version and only accessible thing in the setup I found was the exit
confirmation window (it appears when you press alt+f4). Does it
require some java access bridge sort of thing preinstalled to be
accessible?
