This is a known problem caused either by the DOS command processor
or the JVM. It is specific to the 16bit Windows variants.
Nobody has yet published a workaround, you'll have to experiment
a bit by yourself. You can, for example, try
  java -jar bin\fop.jar nnn.fo nnn.pdf
which might work (or not).
If all else fails, get the source distribution, open
the file src\org\apache\fop\apps\CommandLineOptions.java,
kill the line throwing the exception wih the error
message above and rebuild FOP.
