Go to command prompt, run the ide.bat file from there and check the exception. There can be 2 things wrong ->
Either the "javaw" isn't found OR "javaw" and "java" executables from a different JDK version (less than 1.4 were found).
To avoid the problem, find where JDK is installed and give the full path to run the IDE command. e.g. ->
C:\_home\programs\jdk1.4.2\bin\javaw -Xmx256M -DRIM_RUNTIME=..\lib -DRIM_BIN=..\bin -jar IDE.jar
