Why do I receive an error that reads "WJVIEW error, Could not execute Main"?

A. Wjview lets you view window-based Java applications. You might receive an error message if Wjview attempts to start an application on your system that no longer exists. To check this under Windows XP, perform the following steps:

  1. Start Msconfig.
  2. Select the Startup tab.
  3. Scan the list for any entries that contain "wjview."
  4. If you find any "wjview" entries, try disabling the Wjview startup component and locate any associated folders identified in Msconfig that you might need to delete to determine whether that solves the problem.

To delete the Wjview entries rather than disabling them (and to check under non-XP OSs), perform the following steps:

  • Open a registy editor (e.g., regedit.exe).
  • Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry subkeys.
  • Remove the invalid Wjview entries.
