Could not create the Java virtual machine.
when i try to install atunes and no java games are working. i think its because i havent enabled it but ive no idea how to do so. ive checked all my java files and nothing is in the ???
any help is much appreciated
The "could not create Java virtual machine" error is a possible response to a bad or confusing Java command on a machine that has Java installed correctly. In fact, it's actually a good indication that you do have Java installed.
What distro are you using?
How did you install Java?
What are you trying to do? (Post commands and/or as many details as possible about what you're doing and the computer's response.)
What do you get when you type "java -version" in a terminal window?
