Hi everyone,

I'm new here, and also to Java, so please bear with me if it shows!

I was wondering if anyone else has problems running java.exe in Windows XP? Everytime I try to compile a program (and a very simple one!), I get the "java.exe has encountered a problem and needs to shut down" Send error report box. I have another, older pc running Win98 that doesn't have this problem, so my initial suspicions that it was something I was doing proved wrong. I'm guessing it's XP, but don't know what to do about it. Any ideas?
