that's great, the error is not related to Visual Studio so that
hopefully works now!

by default, a 32-bit LO will be built, which requires a 32-bit JDK.  but
you can also build a 64-bit LO by using the flag --enable-64-bit, in
which case your installed JDK should work fine.

DK:  His great strength is that he is uncompromising. It would make
     him physically ill to think of programming in C++.
