Twist Statup Issue

    Hello Prasanna,

    You do not need to download Eclipse separately.

    I would like to know the following things:

    1. What environment are you running on? Windows/32 bit etc

    2. Where is your Twist installed? C:\Program Files\ etc...

    3. Do you have QTP installed? I suspect this to be the issue. If so, can you tell me what environment variable your JAVA_OPTION was set to?

    Here is a reference link to a similar problem:

    Please let us know.

    Thank you,

    Hi Jayanth,

    1. I am using Window XP Professional (32 bit).

    2. Twist is installed on the following path C:\Program Files\twist

    3. Yes, I do. JAVA_OPTIONS is set to -Xrunjvmhook -Xbootclasspath/a:C:\PROGRA~1\HP\QUICKT~1\bin\JAVA_S~1\classes;C:\PROGRA~1\HP\QUICKT~1\bin\JAVA_S~1\classes\jasmine.jar

    I want both QTP & Twist to run in my machine. So can you please let me know of how to handle this.

    Thank You,

    seems the other "tool" is filddling with bootstrapper classes path, by setting boot.class.path. I can't assume why, but surely this is non-standard usage and as par Java community -Xbootclasspath (transform to boot.class.path) should be rarely used. Ideally, you don't want to set such options at a global level, and should start specific application with specific arguments from its own startup script.

    You have 2 options:

    1) Disable/remove/rename the variable and see if things work. You need to keep switching.

    2) write a script (.bat) file, where you SET JAVA_OPTIONS = -Xms256m (or something else, or nothing) as first thing in the file, and launch twist exe.
