    Easy,
    Without going into the why of how this isnt working.. essentially you need to upgrade your computer.

    In the mean time, do the following to manually add the exception line.

    Start>Computer>Properties>Advanced>Environment Variables>

    Then click "New System Variable"

    For the first line, add this...
    Code:
    _JAVA_OPTIONS
    For the second line, add this...
    Code:
    -Xmx512M
    These ARE case sensitive... meaning you need to type it EXACTLY as it is.

    Click "OK" and then you should be able to run your game.
