How to add a new Java parameter or value: 1. Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\ASWEStreamletEngine\Par ameters" 2. Determine the highest number or value for all the registry entries named "JVM Option Number x" example: JVM Option Number 18 3. Ensure the value in parenthesis for the "JVM Option Count" registry entry is one cardinal number higher than the highest "JVM Option Count" number example 0x00000013(19) 4.
