Following Emil's suggestion I'm sending the results of my last experiences about this issue (not being able to launch SC build 1638 on Win XP Portuguese):
I used the following two commands (I'm not at all proficient in MS-Dos commands, so please correct me if these were not what you meant):
- START "" C:\Progra~1\Sipcom~1\run.exe
The result of this one was the same as always: "Could not create the Java virtual machine" (message printed in English)
No log files were create or updated.
- START "" C:\Progra~1\Sipcom~1\run.bat
The result was a different message: "Windows can not locate 'run.exe'" (this message was in Portuguese and was followed by some suggestions about browsing the directories and trying to find manually the executable).
No log files were created or updated.
I hope that might help you helping me...

Could you please try to execute SC through a command prompt and send the
output to our dev list?
Sending log files (located in %HOME%\Application Data\SIP Communicator)
would also help.

Thank you, Earl, for your answer.
I did what you suggested in two different computers. The result was exactly the same. I might add that, when I tried to start Sip-Comm, I had turned off all the applications that could conflict with it, including other IMs and firewall.
I use daily other java applications like Eclipse and Open Office without a problem.
I also tried to install Sip-Comm 1.0-alpha2 release and this one runs. But, naturally, I would prefer to run the current build.
I have succeeded to run build 1638 on a single computer, equipped with Windows Vista Premium @ 64 bits, in English.
All the computers equipped with Windows XP where I tried to run Sip-Comm 1638 (I tried four different ones already), have the OS in Portuguese... Might this be the reason? System and programs folders have different names in different languages...
Thanks for your help,
I am running build 1638 on two different XP machines with no problems.
You might try uninstalling *all* Java installations using control panel, and then
install the newest Java, downloaded from java.com, again.

I was surprised to read that Sebastian had been able to install version 1638 on WinXP... I've tried already in 3 different computers, both with Win XP and Win XP Pro, and I never could run it. I am abobble to go through the installation process but, when I try to run it, it triggers an error that reads something like: "Java virtual machine could not be started".
I always had a JRE installed and I even downloaded last version just to be sure. What might I be doing wrong?
