      Description



      Name: ssT124754 Date: 03/08/2001


      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0_02)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0_02, mixed mode)


      This bug definitely appears on both Win 98 and NT. It most likely occurs on
      all Windows systems. The bug is very simple. When you install the 1.3.0_02
      JRE it creates a registry entry of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Javasoft\Java
      Runtime Environment\1.3.0. All other JRE installs install to a final key that
      is equal to the JRE version (e.g. JRE 1.3.0_01 has a registry entry
      of ...\1.3.0_01). The registry entry for the 1.3.0_02 JRE is inconsistent with
      other intalls. My company is currently using the registry entry as a means of
      detecting the version of the JRE installed and the checks fail for the 1.3.0_02
      JRE due to the bad registry entry.
