win xp sp3
adobe flash cs5
starting the application, and trying to open the action window I receive the message:

Error initializing Java Runtime Environment. You may need to reinstall Flash

I reinstalled flash and java, checked the java version (online validation) - seems ok, but the above message remains.
On some sites i found that I need to change something in jvm.ini file, but I cannot find that file on my comp (search all disk in win explorer, hidden and system files included).

Any help, pls.

Maybe your documents and settings are on a different hard drive?

On Windows XP it should be located here: %DRIVE ROOT%\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Flash CS5\language\Configuration\ActionScript 3.0\jvm.ini

On Windows Vista or Windows7: %DRIVE ROOT%\Users\user\AppData\Local\Adobe\Flash CS5\language\Configuration\ActionScript 3.0\jvm.ini

(You might need to turn on the show hidden files)

Once you locate it, open the jvm.ini and change -Xmx128m to -Xmx256m, save the file, and restart Flash IDE.
