I am using DOORS and I would like to install and use DWA (DOORS Web Access).
I clicked on IBM_Rational_DOORS_Web_Access.exe and the program exited immediately.
What could be the issue?

 To see the error message, you should run IBM_Rational_DOORS_Web_Access.exe under command prompt.

1) Open a command prompt
2) cd into the directory where IBM_Rational_DOORS_Web_Access.exe is
3) Run IBM_Rational_DOORS_Web_Access.exe under command prompt
You should be able to see error messages.

For example,

PS C:\Users\Administrator> cd .\Desktop
PS C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop> .\IBM_Rational_DOORS_Web_Access.exe
LaunchAnywhere Error: Could not find a valid Java virtual machine to load.

You may need to reinstall a supported Java virtual machine.

From above example, IBM_Rational_DOORS_Web_Access.exe could not find a supported Java virtual machine.
I workaround this issue by adding a jre directory in the PATH environment variable before launching IBM_Rational_DOORS_Web_Access.exe.
