Thank you for your immediate reply.
but pardon me for my
well actually the forrest.properties in
FORREST_HOME/site-author doesnt have the
# Proxy configuration
text at all.
I guessed, probably
correctly, that the file should be the one mentioned in
or may I know where the file
morever i use windows XP Professional. and been using JAVA for quite a
so the problem i guess is not with environment variables but it
lies somewhere else..
You should set the Java Home to point to
the lib folder for a Java JDK installation, not a JRE
As the Java Home is not set, it is finding and
assuming to use Java 1.5 from D:\Program
Right Click My Computer > Properties
>Advanced > Environment Variables then in the 'User Variables'
section select 'New'
Enter JAVA_HOME for the variable name and
enter the lib path of a Java JDK installation. Mine is
set at C:\Program
Whilst still in the 'User Variables' section
also create an entry for Forrest Home, using 'FORREST_HOME' as the variable
name and the path for where forrest root is as the value - e.g.
You might also want to add forrest home path
to the path variable.
Cant help with the proxy as I never used it,
but maybe worth checking the windows firewall is not blocking anything thats
needed here (not that it blocks much anyway).
