One of the error messages you sent along contains a reference to
"C:\Program Files\JavaSoft\...".   Unless you actually installed
everything in that directory, there should _never_ be a reference to
that when running your jython scripts.  The start-up batch files
(jy.bat, for example) should always (and _only_) point to the 'jre'
subdirectory within the install directory.

Please double-check the execution path in the batch file to be sure it
is indeed pointed to the java.exe that came with the installer and not
some other one you might have on your machine.  There should not be any
reference to other versions of the java runtime on your machine.

If you have your .py files in a directory other than the install
directory, you might want to put the 'jy.bat' file into some directory
in your PATH, and explicitly set the JYTHON_PATH environment variable
used therein, to point to the install directory.

Hope that helps!  Happy New Year...
