    do you have to install the entire j2se or can you just use the jre and run it from a directory?

    What do you mean run it from a directory?

      Re: jre 1.5

      well i think what my boss means is that he does not want to install the entire J2se on a clients server. So is there a way to just use the jre without having to use the j2se big install. Did I confuse you even more?

        I see what you mean. I don't believe there is a way to run just the JRE without the full installation, however I might be wrong. Maybe someone else can chime in?

          You don't need to 'install' the JRE

          To run the MIRTH server, you can use the JRE packed from a directory. You can get it from a previously JRE installed at other machine.

          This method allows to use different version of th JRE in the same machine.

          Of course, to do this, you need to edit the Mirth.bat and change the PATH an JAVA_HOME variables, pointing themes to the right dir

            You could download the Java Runtime here.
            JAVA SOFTWARE

            Java Runtime Environment Version 5.0 Update 9


            I was able to download JRE v5.0 Update 9, "Windows (Offline Installation) (filesize: 15.74 MB)" and install on a Windows XP Pro box. Mirth v1.2 worked fine with just the Java Runtime.

            Hope it helps.

              Well I put this in my mirth.bat file and it will go to the Launch Mirth Admin screen. When I click Lauch Mirth Button it tries to download mirth instead of running it. HEre is a copy of my .bat file. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

              @ECHO OFF
              set JAVA_HOME=C:\Java\jre1.5.0_09\bin

              set PATH=%PATH%;%JAVA_HOME%

              %JAVA_HOME%/java -jar mirth-launcher.jar launcher.xml

                What means 'launch mirth button'?

                I suppouse You are running the client and the server in the same machine. The client is based on webstart, and this means:
                1.- IT will try to update the jre installed on the machine to 1.5
                2. It will download the client (only first time), and then run it.

                So, if you see the mirth downloading something, it's fine. Sometimes, the deskop doesn't get well-configured and a a dialog asks the user to select a program for openninng the download: just select the javaws.

                Other option: create a new direct access on your desktop, with the text:

                C:\Java\jre1.5.0_09\bin\javaws http:\\\webstart

                This opens and launch the Mirth client

                  Re: jre 1.5

                  Should the JAVA_HOME be pointing to the bin directory? I would expect it to be more like this:

                  set JAVA_HOME=C:\Java\jre1.5.0_09

                  set PATH=%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%PATH%

                  java -jar mirth-launcher.jar launcher.xml
