MSI issues with 64 bit JRE

Reported by: smith@… Owned by: smith@…
Priority: major Milestone: v1.2.1
Component: Distribution - Windows MSI Version: v1.0.1
Keywords: Cc:


When on a 64 bit windows box, the MSI installer ends up looking in "HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Javasoft" so misses any 64bit JRE installed whose registry entries will be at the usual place. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/305097 for info on 32/64 bit registry shenanigans.

v1.2 tested on Windows Server 2003 i386 & x64, Windows Server 2008 R2 i386 & x64, and Windows Server 2012 x64.

If it sill doesn't work for anyone, they need to install the correct JRE for the system.
