If your installation went properly, you should have a Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates folder in your start menu.

Check your \Program Files\Yohoho\ directory for a shortcut, too.

It is possible that JRE (Java Runtime Environment) was not installed properly. This is a very necessary component required for Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates to run.

I suggest downloading the base JRE install, running that, and then trying to play Puzzle Pirates again.

You can download JRE here: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

If it still doesn't work, try a reinstall of Y!PP after a successful install of JRE.

If the JRE install you downloaded was the basic, ~1.4MB version, it may be failing to initialize a download of additional components. This would put a stop to the installation process.

If you are on a broadband connection, you can try installing the full version of JRE located here: http://java.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=8939

This should contain everything necessary for a complete JRE install.

ive downloaded it, but it says it has a error reading the setup initiation file, this is getting annoying indeed.

im starting to think that the only way to be able to get the java client is for someone else to mail their installer to me as a attachment, other than that, i could check CDs, but i doubt one of them will have java.

Try doing the full download for offline installation, rather than trying to do the online install.

Offline install works for me (Win2K), but online install does not.

I also had to try it repeatedly, unfortunately, and one of the household computers (WinXP) required a total and tedious wipe of all Java-related components from the machines before it would install cleanly enough to run YPP.
