Question How To Install .JAR/.JAD Game Files

I have the HTC Touch Pro with Sprint running WM6.1.
I am unable to install some java games I dl'ed.

I moved the .JAR files onto the phone memory and try to install as I would a .CAB just by clicking it but it doesn't work. I get an error message saying "There is no application associated with...Run the application first, then open this file from within the application."

I read that I need to first install an app that can read/open .JAR files.
I also read that I should be able to find a java app in the windows directory but that is not the case.
Can anyone help and point me to where I can dl such an app or give me specific directions on how to install java games?
Also, would I need the .JAD file as well, or will I be able to install just using the .JAR file?

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

For some reason, the Sprint Touch Pro doesn't come with Java. Do a search on these forums or xda-developers for Esmertec Jbed. Install that CAB and then you can install and run your java programs.

Also, if you seatch for Opera Mini (different from Opera Mobile)... you should be able to find an install file that installs Esmertec Jbed along with Opera Mini. Once you install that cab file, you SHOULD be able to run the java games.

Yeah, that works, but now I notice there is no way to force games to run in VGA, and running them in qvga sucks horribly.

agreed... the games are horrible in qvga mode.

Does anyone know of any other way to install java games and play in VGA mode?
