I am wondering if you can help me. I just installed the windows 64 bit version, I updated my Java to the latest version. Rebooted my computer and on attempted to open datawarrior the following two messages keep appearing. Wondering if you could suggest any possible fixes to this problem.

error: cant find java.dll
Error: cant find java 2 runtime environment

I assume, you installed the 32-bit Java JRE, because this is the default even for an 64 bit Windows installation.
Oracle says on its web site that 64-bit Internet Explorer still has problems to render all web sites. Therefore,
Microsoft installs the 32-bit version of IE as default, which forces Oracle to supply 32-bit Java as default.
The 64 bit installation is a little difficult to find on the Java download web site. But you can install both, 32-bit and 64-bit JREs independently. You may install the 64-bit JRE for Windows after the DataWarrior installation to fix the issue. The following seems to be a link to the most recent 64-bit WIndows JRE: 1-windows-x64.exe

Good luck,

I ran into the same problem. I uninstalled 32-bits JRE, downloaded and installed 64-bits JRE, and DW started without a problem.

Fantastic program btw, I just discovered it. Who needs SpotFire?
