Thanks for your input - glad of any help I can get.
First thing I did was to check the value you have for CLASSPATH, by 'Explore'ing it.
1) - I do not have a 'Program Files' folder in C:\. Mine is 'program files'. Would this make a difference, or is it not case-sensitive? I am loathe to alter this in case I do something I cannot undo.
2) My 'QuickTime' folder within 'program files' does not have a QTSystem folder, so I guess your value for CLASSPATH would not do anything for me. Is that a fair guess?
3) I entered your QTJAVA name, & its value. Java still does not play for me!
4) I checked the 'value that does not exist on your PC'. Ignoring the 'Progam Files'/'program files' thing, i get as far as lib/ext, but the QTJava.zip does not exist on my PC, either.
I am your archetypal non-techie, so I go very carefully, & don't make too many assumptions!! I am scared stiff of screwing up the system, and being unable to get it back. So I very much appreciate help from those whose expertise exceeds mine.
