Odd, I just upgraded my 2.0 beta to the latest version and there's no trace of this file. Have you tried opening the Database yet ? If so did it work ?

You could try downloading the Java runtime environment click here , but without knowing what the file in question is ?

You might have to tell OO where Java is, try having a look in Tools>Options and see if you can point it to where you've got Java installed.

problem is it tells me to install it and run odb again, i looked in tools options advanced and oddly enough under vm there was a tick taken out of enable java console, i re ticked it and rebooted but still the same, will try Belatucadrus idea and see what happens
