installing Limewire/java


So, I installed the java runtime environment ok, but missed something , I think , for installing Limewire gives this message:


"COnfiguring the installer for this system's environment....No java virtual Machine could be found from your PATH environment variable. You must insatll aVM prior to running this program."


The "found from your path environment variable part...that is the part I don't get.? WHat do I need to edit?

Try reading the INSTALL and README files that came with the JRE package - it tells you word for word what to do.
