Fix for java.awt.AWTError: Assistive Technology not found

Hey,

I have found this "weird" error on one of the Windows 7 64-bit machine. After hours of "googling" it comes that the common cause is missing or invalid Java Access Bridge library.

It needs to be manually installed:

1. Download from oracle:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jab-2-0-2-download-354311.html

2. Follow the instructions on official docs:
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/accessbridge/2.0.2/setup.htm

3. Set the system environment variable to point to the related JAB files:

For example:

ORACLE_OEM_CLASSPATH=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk\jre\lib\jaccess.jar;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk\jre\lib\access-bridge.jar

Hope thats helpful :)

Okay, my question not being acomputer code specialist is why would this suddenly happen to a program already installed on a computer but nothing else?

There is no special golden rule of when it can occur. In my case it happened after some part of system update (i.e. windows update, java update)
