How can I resolve the error "cannot find the path specified" when trying to start LinkTester from SilkTest?

How can I resolve the error "cannot find the path specified" when trying to start LinkTester from SilkTest?

The problem may be that you do not have a JVM set up in your machine path or you do not have a JVM installed on your machine. As of SilkTest 6.5, a JVM is no longer installed as a part of SilkTest.

The solution is to install a JVM from http://java.sun.com/downloads/.

Alternately, check that a valid JVM directory is listed in your PATH Environment Variable. To check your PATH variable:

  1. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel and double-click the System icon.
    • On Windows2000 or XP, click the Advanced tab, then click Environment Variables.
    • On Windows NT, click the Environment tab.

  2. Under User Variables or System Variables, search for the PATH variable. Select it, then click Edit.
  3. Enter the path to your JVM directory (for example, c:\program files\jvm\;), using a semi-colon to separate it from any other paths listed. Then click OK.
  4. Restart SilkTest.
