I have just installed Wuala, some kind of Dropbox equivalent, and, when I start it, a window appear telling "Failed to find Java VM".

I already have a Java VM installed, but I have checked again, and the Java VM is installed and be launched from the command line.

Wuala requires the following line to be present in the wuala.ini file (on Windows 7 is located here C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Wuala):

vm.location=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\client\jvm.dll

Note the above path is applicable to Windows 7 64-bit, for JRE 6 32-bit. Also note that Wuala does not start when using the server dll of the JRE 7 64-bit.

Only god knows why the JRE7 x64 server dll doesn't work... –  Gottlieb Notschnabel Mar 11 '14 at 12:45
