Hello, sorry if this has already been posted but I couldn't find anything after having a quick  look around.

I'm having a bit of a problem with the new 1.6.1 client for Windows. I downloaded the archive, removed the 1.5.9 version and extracted the files to a folder. I double-clicked the file named 'wom' and pretty much straight away up pops an error titled "Java Virtual Machine Launcher" and the error itself said "Could not create the Java virtual machine."

I've tried updating Java, reinstalling Java, redownloading the archive and yes, I have turned my PC off and on again. The same result each time.

Any help / insight will be appreciated!

Guys, how much RAM Memory do you have free before you launch WoM Game Client?

The performance tab of Task Manager will provide you with answers.

Roughly 2.3GB.

Anyway, I followed gremlo114's suggestion (I'm running Windows 7 x64, so I used compatibility set at XP SP3) and it seems to be working fine. Thanks.

There seems to be a common trend..

IT DOESN'T WORK WITH 64bit... but works with 32bit 

Please fix as fast as possible. Minecraft is the best!!

Got this error message myself.

As I've said in the thread titled "WoM 1.6.1 not running", WoM isn't running on my computer. So, I tried running it in compatability mode for 2000, and I got this exact error.

I use Windows XP SP2-3.

yeah, it seems you can just change the compatibility mode to shake the java error, but now it just straight up wont run. as in, double click, wait, nothing happens.

"Could not create the Java virtual machine."

I hope someone finds a fix for this soon. Anywhere I can redownload the old client? That one worked fine for me.
