Maybe it has something to do with how Java was installed on the Windows
box -- I know I couldn't get anything to work right when I installed Java
on my NT using the installer, and only got things to work after I got rid
of all that (just manually put the JDK files on my disk from a jar-file).
I don't know what-all the installer did, but I suspect it put things in
weird places and probably diddled around with the registry (can you tell I
don't trust installers? :)
