2008 EWA NET Install problem

May be someone has an idea on this problem. I have installed the software on XP, i have reached the part were you click on the program you want to use . . . EPC or WIS. When selecting either program (EPC,WIS) Java starts to run and nothing happens, no other windows pop up and IE7 doesnt refresh with any new content. Any one has an idea of what im missing or a suggestion??

thank you

For EPC when you click it Java will ask if you want to run, click yes. Then yes again, followed by no to the next question.....For WIS click yes then no.

EWA can be very fussy in regard to both Java and Adobe Reader, i.e. it doesn't always like the latest versions.

I do get all the green check marks, but when I click on the EPC or the WIS . . . it starts intiallizing and Java loads. Soon after Java loads I get the security question, after that nothing happens or I get the "error while attempting login action. contact system administrator". Is their a service manual specific for the S550?

Did all discs load ok? I think I had to click the EPC update and run it and it asked for a disc that I'd already done,so I ran that disc and all was well. Open EWA and click the EPC with the spanner next to it, run that and then do the same with WIS.

If you have a version of Java loaded on your computer, try removing it first. If it is too new a version for your version of EWA, the install routine will fail, because the Java install will stumble at the notion of overwriting a more current version. It may not help, but it's worth a try...
