java version "1.6.0_01"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_01-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_01-b06, mixed mode, sharing)

As mentioned in my original mail, I had updated to that version, was previously running jre 1.5.0_09, in case a new version of Java fixed the error.

[Virtual Machine Parameters]
JRE Path=C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_09


[Virtual Machine Parameters]
JRE Path=C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_08


[Virtual Machine Parameters]
JRE Path=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_08

give me the same error.

I should point out that I have been successfully running oXygen, without the 'includes jvm' option, for some years. This particular machine has been running oXygen 8.1 for four months, since I got it. The errors started happening about a week ago, not clear why. 

This isn't an "I can't install oXygen" bug report. Its an "oXygen suddenly stopped working" bug report.
