Could someone tell me how to fix the error when i start minecraft that says "Could not create the Java Virtual Machine" my computer is windows Xp and my opening programs are winrar and winzip.

What i tried:
I deleted Java then reinstalled it
I reinstalled minecraft
I tried to use the minecraft.bat way to fix it (it still didnt work)
Then i tried to search up for codes to fix it but couldn't find any at all. :(

So if you know how to fix it can you please reply to tell me how to? :)

Make sure you do these steps:

put minecraft on your desktop

create a new Notepad file

in the new note pad file copy this and paste it java -Xms650m -jar "C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Desktop\minecraft.exe


Where it says username put your Username of your computer


then save the file as Minecraft.bat

save it to your desktop

open up the Minecraft.bat leave it running,

open up minecraft and it should pop up in a little while

hopefully this Helped :D If not try to re watch the Tutorials on youtube!


Oh and leave the minecraft.bat running while your playing minecraft!
