Re: What version of Java is required to run Towns?
the minimu requeriments are Java 1.5. So, it should work with your Java version.
I supose that you installed Java long time ago, and the java.exe file it's not in the PATH.
You have 3 options:
1) Reinstall Java
2) Assure that your PATH includes the full route to the java/bin folder
3) Edit towns.cmd and replace the word "java" by the full route to the ...java/bin/java.exe file
