I have a fairly standard win2k desktop, service pack 4, no
major issues, 1 gb ram, 80gb harddrave, ya da yada. I use it all
the time and am pretty happy with it. But Flex refuses to install.
I tried with the betas and gave up. I tried with the 2.0 about 6
times. No better luck. The screen flashes all black for a few
seconds, then comes back in patches - I can move a window around to
force it refresh into visibility. But the actual install box never
does: it just appears like a blank box. I know what it is supposed
to look like - graphics, buttons, click here to install. But I see
none of that. Even if I click where I the buttons are SUPPOSED to
be, nada. I tried over and over. Many times it said it was
corrupted, so I redownloaded, tried again. When it did continue, it
was slow as mud (and my box is not slow, usually!) and then just
got me to a blank unusable screen. I had everything off. I even
tried this in safe mode! Sigh. Do I have to get a new machine? Hah.
Ideas??? I did, once, see some Java error, but I didn't write it
down and I didn't get it again. My machine easily fits the req.
specs. Sighhh. Ideas? Thanks in advance,
I've never really understood Java installs. I have JRE 1.5.6
which the docs say is ok too, I think....If you can give me the
exact sun url for 1.4.2 I can try that though. And does it show as
RUNNING on my machine anywhere??
