    How do I generate/initiate a custom batch file on my new Win7-64 machine?

    Can't use the HTML software until I increase it's available virtual memory...

    According to Help -
    I need to replace the sample path with a new path to my own installation directory with this:

    java-Xmx400M-jar"C.Program FilesYahoo SiteBuildersitebuilder.jar"

    then change the memory by replacing 400 with another number.

    What kind of a "custom batch file"? What is the extension on the batch file? Most Windows batch files have .bat or .cmd extensions and should work on Win7 just like they did on XP. As far as creating one goes, any text editor will work. I detest notepad (though it would work), I prefer using NotePad++: http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm

    Also, it looks like you are running a Java application. Where did you install the Site Builder software? What is the full path for the sitebuilder.jar file? I would assume on the 64-bit Win7 that you would have something like (replace the part in quotes with the actual full path):

    java -Xmx400M -jar "c:\Program Files (x86)\Yahoo SiteBuilder\sitebuilder.jar"

    You should be able to open Notepad, type in your batch info, then save as with a .bat extension. Save where ever would work best for you.
