I just installed Nokia Ovi Suite for syncing photos from my phone and such, but the program won't open, and nor will any of my other Java applications.

I tried installing latest version of Java (didn't uninstall, just installed new one) but that didn't help.

My PC is running Windows 7 64 bit.

What's gone wrong and how do i fix it?

"didn't uninstall, just installed a new one". Installing a new one, doesn't always fix the errors of the previous one. Uninstall, and reinstall and see what that does first. – KronoS Oct 18 '10 at 16:30
Uninstall all Java versions and reinstall – harrymc Oct 18 '10 at 16:37

i worked it out myself the second time i broke it:

don't panic, don't uninstall or update java

just change the default program for opening java applications back to java itself


just right click on a java app or a shortcut to a java app

go to "properties"

go to the "general" tab of the properties window

where it says "opens with" click change

for me there was an option of "java (TM) platform SE binaries"

i changed it to that, and now all my java apps seem to open with java
