      Description



      Build : b78
      Installer: j2re-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b78-win-27_aug_2001.exe
                 j2re-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b78-win-i-27_aug_2001.exe
                 j2sdk-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b78-win-27_aug_2001.exe
      OS: Windows ME, 98 and 95 Japanese


      --- Problems ------------------------------------------------------
      1) J2SDK : j2sdk-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b78-win-27_aug_2001.exe

      - Path which is defined for the installed directory by default is wrong as below;

      C:\j2sdk1.4.0-beta3PRODUCT_NAME=Java 2 SDK Standard Edition v1.4.0-beta3 ERROR_UNINSTSETUP=
      * Japanese strings which means that initializing the setting for uninstalling fails and this product can't be uninstalled follows the strings above.

      Specifying a proper path (ex. C:\j2sdk1.4.0-beta3), J2sdk can be installed properly.

      - The proper product name for PRODUCT_NAME seems not to be got and a string "PRODUCT_NAME" itself is used on InstallShield.

      - j2re is not installed on the default path, "Program Files\JavaSoft\java\j2re1.4.0-beta3"
      JaWS is also not installed on the default path, "Program Files\Java Web Start"

      - "PRODUCT_NAME" is listed in "Contorol Panel->Add or Remove Programs" instead of "Java 2 SDK Standard Edition V1.4.0".
      Selecting "PRODUCT_NAME" and trying to remove it, it dissappears from the list and j2sdk is actually uninstalled.



      2) J2RE : j2re-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b78-win-i-27_aug_2001.exe
             j2re-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b78-win-27_aug_2001.exe

      - Installing with either of the installers above, a dialog comes up and says that string PRODUCT_KEY was not found in string table.
      "PRODUCT_KEY=javaw.Exe" is displayed on the InstallShield.

      - Though j2re can be installed on the default path (ex. "C:\Program Files\Java\J2re1.4.0-beta3"), "Java 2 Runtime Enviroment Standard Edition V1.4.0" is not listed on "Contorol Panel->Add or Remove Programs".

      - JaWS is also installed on the default path (ex. "C:\Program Files\Java Web Start") and "Java Web Start" is listed on "Contorol Panel->Add or Remove Programs".

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------

      * Both of the problem above is not seen on WinNT, 2000 and XP RC1 Japanese.

      * Trying to re-install over j2sdk, in the situation that j2sdk already exist, the installer tries to uninstall j2sdk and uninstalling is done properly.

      The same thing can be said for j2re and j2re-i insatller (It removes j2re only and JaWS is not removed.) and it can be a Workaround for the problem that j2re is not listed on "Contorol Panel->Add or Remove Programs" and can't be uninstalled from ControlPanel.

      * These problems are not seen in b77.
