    Access is denied

    You should probably check permissions on your java install. Could seem like something is goofed up.

  • Ok as soon as I get home ill check the permissions and reply with a solution if I succeed. Should be within 6 hours of this post. Thank you CheeseBaron because you are the only person helping me so far.

  • How do I check permissions on java? how do I get there?
