Error launching Class hms.hms
with Java java\bin\javaw
I use this computer for work, and deliberately do little web surfing in hopes of keeping it clean. I built the machine about a year ago and loaded verry little software not work related and rarely use them past the initial trying-out-the-new-machine stage. I use it mainly for CAD (drafting and deisgn) because it can handle larger files. I run a hydrology simulation program called hec-hms, version 3.4 which is the newest version. This program is developed and supported by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, however non-corps users are not supported by the corps. This program is widely used and there are many support forums for non-corps users. The error occurs when I start the program, but I suspect that the error is not specific to this program, but . . . what do I know? What I do know is that the error is new after many months of using this program daily, I also know that I uninstalled it, downloaded/reinstalled it anew from the USACE website without change.
The odd thing is that when searching this error, I only get one hit, which is for a forum submission with a similar problem. But there have been no responses to that post. I suspected perhaps a virus, but I would not get a virus on this machine unless it is somewhat common and therfore I expect to see some posts about it, again what do I know . . . my suspicions do not make it so.
I am hesitant to start running scans ad hoc, as my experience with such things is limited to XP and I do not know what difference Vista makes, and whether the Vista help out there always applies to the 64 bit version.
Of course, I need this machine working correctly, but just as importantly I need to limit the possibility that my machine is infecting files sent to clients et. al.
Calling all Gurus.
