I have java runtime 1.5 installed on my system.  When I run the Toolkit, on the first page I get an error stating the the java RTE 1.4.2 is not installed.  Actually, I have JRE 1.5 installed.

This later propagates to the connection string since my system has the jdbcodbc libary and not the jdbc library.  At this point I cannot use this program to proform a migration.

How to repeat:
Run the program with JRE 1.5 set up on a workstation (JRE 1.4.2 cannot have been installed before).

Suggested fix:
Allow for 1.4.2 versions and above.  Test for JRE versions and use the appropiate jdbc library.

I had the same problem.

I Uninstalled JRE 1.5 
That seems to have fixed it. Now atleast it runs. Although now I have a new error.

A friend of mine, who is a Java developer told me sometimes people write their software for a specific runtime. He keeps many different versions on hand.
