"Error - no 'client' JVM at ...jre-bin-client-jvm.dll"

You are getting this or a similar error when choosing the JRE folder that your application uses:

Error: no ‘client’ JVM at `C:\Users\myuser\Desktop\jre\bin\client\jvm.dll’.

Possible cause

This indicates that this JRE does not contain the HotSpot client JVM while jre/lib/i386/jvm.cfg has it configured first in the list of available virtual machines.

This message is actually just a warning from the JRE when executing javaw.exe. (It is not a Squish message, although Squish just happens to start javaw.exe to test something.)

Automating your application with Squish should work correctly despite this message.
