Aperi/Verify Your JRE
1. To check for Java on a machine, start a command prompt window (Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt) and type java -version from a command line.
If you see text similar to the following then continue to step 2:
java version "1.5.0_07" Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_07-b03) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_07-b03, mixed mode)
If you see text like the following, download the JRE from the IBM or Sun (http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp) web sites before continuing:
'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
2. Set java into your PATH by typing the following at the command prompt:
where path_to_java_directory represents the directory where the JRE is installed.
Setting the Java path has two purposes: 1) it is used to run the Installer, and 2 ) it is stored in the Aperi startup scripts and used to run Aperi Storage Manager. This means that if you later uninstall the Java with this path, you won't be able to start Aperi Storage Manager until you reconfigure Aperi.
Note: You can also edit the install.bat file or the System Path to contain the JRE pathname.
