Tested bundle: j2sdk-1_4_0-beta-bin-b63-win-01_may_2001.exe
Tested environment: Win98se /Win2000 korean
When user enters "java -version" or runs java applications, there is a
following error message displayed :
" Error occurred during initialization of VM
java.lang.Error : Default decoding not supported : MS949 "
Also, when user enters "which javac" , "which appletviewer" ..., it doesn't display absolute path of "javac, appletviewer ...". But, the absolute path of javac can be diplayed with j2sdk-1_3_1-rc2-bin-b24-win-XXX.exe.
On b64, Traditional Chinese Windows 95 has similar errors:
Error occurred during initialization of VM
java.lang.Error: Default decoding not supported: MS950
java full version "1.4.0-beta-b64"
With further investigation I found that if we use absolute path then the following command works:
java version "1.4.0-beta"
Java (TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-beta-b64)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-beta-b64, mixed mode)
If you open MS-DOS window, type "java -version", it points to
the java.exe under it, then you will see the erroe message.
For me which javac gives the full path, please see attached bmp file
