  1. #1

    Default Installation error

    I recently downloaded Kettle. I am trying to launch Spoon, unfortunately I keep getting an error message from the Java Virtual machine launcher: "Could not find the main class. Program will exit".

    I have the following Java programs installed in my computer:

    1. j2sdk1.4.2_08
    2 jre1.5.0_06

    Kettle version 3 requires Java version 1.5 or higher.
    Kettle version 2 requires Java version 1.4 or higher.

    - You need to use JDK 1.5/5 or higher (for PDI3.0)
    - You have to unzip the file keeping the directory structure (you need to see a lib directory e.g. in your kettle directory).

    Not that I can think of, as long as the JDK is properly supported it should work.
