During the setup of Microsoft Visual J++ Publisher's Edition from the Microsoft Press "Learn Java Now" companion CD-ROM, the Setup program asks the following:

Please type your name and organization, and your 10 digit 'CD Key' located on the yellow sticker of your CD liner notes or CD sleeve.

The input boxes for your name and organization are available, but the input box for the CD key is grayed out and includes a number of X's.


This is not an error. The full version of Microsoft Visual J++ is packaged on a CD-ROM with a jewel case. This jewel case includes a sticker listing a CD key, used for registration purposes. The Publisher's version of Microsoft Visual J++ does not include this sticker.

To continue through the setup, simply enter your name and company (if applicable) into the appropriate boxes, and then click Next.

Microsoft Press has received reports that the CD key field is blank--neither grayed out nor with the X's as described above. If the CD key field is not filled in when you click the Next button, the setup program will respond with an error message instructing you to enter the CD key into the appropriate field.

Microsoft Press has not been able to reproduce this error. If you cannot continue in the setup program by entering your name (and company, if applicable) and clicking Next, then please send details of your problem to MSPINPUT@MICROSOFT.COM. Include the following information:

  • The operating system that you are running (e.g. Windows 95).
  • Any other programs you have running while you are running the Setup program.
  • Whether you have other programs that use the Microsoft Developer Environment (e.g. Microsoft Visual C++).
  • Any other information you feel is relevant.

Microsoft Press will continue to investigate this issue and will post further information in this article when available.
