      Description

      The HotSpot 1.0.1 Installer incorrectly updates the Windows registry when installing HotSpoot on a drive that is not the boot volume.

      STEPS TO REPRODUCE
      - Setup a Pentium computer to be dual boot. Install Windows 95 or 98 on the C-drive. Install Windows NT on the D-drive.
      - Boot up under Windows NT.
      - Install JDK 1.2.2 build w with Java 2 Runtime Environment. Install JDK 1.2.2 onto the C-drive, install JRE onto the D-Drive.
      - Install HotSpot 1.0.1 build b using the JRE/PlugIn installation option
      - Installation happens and all software components get put into the correct places. The only thing that is set incorrectly is an entry in the Windows registry.

      - Using Regedit, open the Windows NT registry and access the following path

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Javasoft/Java Plug-in/1.2

      In the 1.2 record, variables that are holding path information should all be referencing the D-drive. The "RuntimeLib" entry is , however, referencing the C-drive. It should be referencing the D-Drive.

      RuntimeLib D:\Program Files\JavaSoft\JRE\1.2\bin\hotspot\jvm.dll
