First time I've come across that.
- Which version of Java do you have installed?
- Were you able to install REW OK and get this error when trying to start REW, or is this during installation?
- If REW installed OK, are there any log files in the REW directory of your home directory (Documents and Settings\<username>\REW)? If there are, what is in them?

I wonder if its the fact your still running service pack 2? XP is up to service pack 4 now.

Re: Java VM is aborting ? Unbelievable!

If REW was working for you previously with Java 6 v37 , then perhaps you should stick with the older version 6 .

Here's a link to the latest builds of Java 6 ( build 38 ) .

XP SP3 could be a factor I guess, but easier to try Earl's suggestion first and uninstall JRE V7 and install JRE V6.

That is what I started with - not a huge fan of windows updates, since security, etc is not a factor on this PC since it never is used on-line.

I may just ditch it and get true rta ?
