Problem with Windows 7 and discovery tool

We have been using Nano Station 2.4.and 5 gig for a couple of years in our wireless network. Re-issuing radios using the discovery tool or trouble shooting has worked well on our lap tops with XP. I recently got a couple of new computers one with Vista and the other with Windows 7 and I can't get them to run the program for the ubnt Discovery tool. I get error messages.

"can't find javaw" etc

We can reset the radios to default or hopefully get the static ip for our customer from our office. But it is better to scan for it and save time. Xp is going away.....I would sure like to figure this out.

Thanks

Re: Problem with Windows 7 and discovery tool

Did you install the Java Runtime Environment?

Jumping in with the same problem...yes, I just re-installed Java Runtime Environment on my Windows 7 64 bit system, Java version 6 update 31. ubnt Discovery tool v2.3 appears to be looking in C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe
Suggestions? Thanks, Yooper

I run the discovery tool all the time on this laptop (Win 7 pro 64bit).

No probs what so ever.

Make sure you are running the .JAR file not the batch file that is also included in the UBNT download.
If I run the batch file I get the "can't find javaw" error along with W7 briefly opening the command window.
