    Preparing to install...
    Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
    Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
    No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
    environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
    running this program.

    Just for a note, you need a java virtual machine. Look it up, because as
    brushmaster1 said, p2p is against Forum policy. Generally they cause more problems than they are worth.

    But in Linux most programs work better since Linux uses memory corect;y, file security is better, and Viruses are near to none on linux. (y)
    so dont give up on linux, once you get the skills you need and find a good linux help source it will take off for you.
    good luck.
