Java
Which Version of Java do I need to run xnsdoc?
JDK 1.3.1.* or 1.5.0 or higher. If you are using Windows and you don't have Java, you can also download xnsdoc with Java, so you don't necessarily need to download Java separately.
Why shouldn't I use Java 1.4?
Java 1.4 is shipped with an integrated old version of Apache Xalan that cannot be overwritten. In this case, xnsdoc will fall back into a compatibility mode, but still there's no garanty that all pages can be rendered.
Where can I download Java?
Java can be downloaded at http://java.sun.com/downloads/. If you are using Windows and you don't have Java, you can also download xnsdoc with Java, so you don't necessarily need to download Java separately.
When I try to start xnsdoc, all I get is The system cannot find the path specified.. What's wrong?
xnsdoc doesn't write any application specific information to the registry. Instead when installing xnsdoc, the environment variable XNSDOC_HOME is being set to the installation folder of xnsdoc and the installation folder is added to the PATH variable. If you logon as a different user, these settings might be lost and might cause this error. Also you might have set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to a path that doesn't contain a valid Java VM.
