Wrong Error Message on Installing JDK over machine having less disk space

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      x86
    • OS:
      windows_2000

      Description

      JDK Build - 77
      OS - Win2000
      Hardware - Intel - Pentium II

      Steps to Reproduce :-

      1.Decrease the free space on some drive ( for me it was D:) to about 41MB
      2.Install JDK-build 77
      3.while unpacking an error dialog pop-up saying :-
      There is not enough free space on D:\ drive to extract this package , Please free up 38.17MB and click retry
      4. Installer exits

      I tried with different capacities of free space (39 MB , 50 MB , 65 MB and 75 MB )to test for boundary condition

      Installation passes when free space is about 75MB
      Actually after installing JDK there is an entry corresponding to installed JDK in ADD/REMOVE programs which shows the size of JDK as 75 MB

      So the error message should be changed to "Free Space should be 75 MB "
      The snapshot of the disk capacity and error message is attached
