Error occurred during initialization of VM Windows 7, windows xp

Full Error Message:

Error occurred during initialization of VM java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object

If you get this error message chances are that your java vm is corrupted (whatever that means) since there are not much out there to help us out.

Here is how we solved this issue:

1. Remove Java entirely (we use a software called revo uninstaller).  At the time of writing this software has a free version or you can simply buy it (note that YCSoftware is not affiliated with this company). We personally like this software because it removes any leftovers from the registry.

2. Download java from this page

3.  Install it.

4. Now go to your command line and type “java  -version” to test your achievement.
