From the output above, it looks like you either installed the 64 bit XP version on a 32 bit system, or you installed the generic installer which does not include java. For Windows, you'll need to use the XP installer that includes java. If you did use the XP installer, open a DOS window and change to the C:\Program Files\IDV_2.6u2\jre\bin directory. Then do a directory listing: dir java.exe to see if java is in that directory. If it is there, then run: .\java -version to see if there is an error. If you get an error, try re-installing the IDV.
