[SOLVED] Could not to create Java Virtual Machine - Steam

Postby harrison110 » Sat Nov 10, 2012 3:55 pm

Got the game through steam and running it on a winXP machine.

As the title says i get the following error upon opening the game:

Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

I installed the game through steam on a machine without java (fresh windows install this morning actually) and installed the latest java (Version 7 Update 9) through the java website page that came up.
Then ran the game again and the error appeared.
I restarted.
Ran game, same error.
Uninstalled game.
Restarted
Installed game.
Ran game, same error.
Uninstalled game.
Restarted.
Installed game.
Restarted.
Ran game, same error.

Tried leaving it for a while and trying again several times, all with same error, have also used the steam verify the game integrity tool and had no problems.

Any fixes or questions???

Have figured it out,
selecting from the steam client must be wrong as it plays fine if you run the app from and "steamapps/common/Towns" folder.

What error does it generate if you run it form steam. In the towns folder there should be an error log, which will help us identify your issue. :)

Do you know the location of the log and its file name in the "steamapps/common/towns" folder tom?

Should be in steamapps/towns with the name "error.log" or "hs_err_xx" or similar :)

I haven't found a single file in the towns folder with anything like an error log name at all... i have even searched my whole PC for part of the file name "err"

Have tried it just after launching the game which gives the error...

Hi!

I just bought Towns via Steam and I'm having the same problems, and it does not work either way!

Im also running windows XP 32, uninstalled and reinstalled latest Java version.. Always the same error and no error log anywhere.

I want to play the game so bad :( Any help?

Hello everyone. :D
I'm another steam buyer with the same problem however I'm running Win7(32bit). When I try to boot up the same via steam or the app in the steam folder, I get halted by the "Could not create the Java Virtual Machine". The game doesn't even load so I guess that's why steam doesn't create the error log. I've uninstalled and reinstalled java 7.9, verified the game cache and checked if my GPU drivers were up to date.

I'm running Windows7 Ultimate 86x
Intel P4 3.40ghz
GPU is a NVIDIA GetForce 8600 GT
Java version 7 update 9

I'm sorry if i can get anymore info. I'm really not sure whats going on. It would be really great if you guys could help me. Thanks.
