      Description


      Build : b83
      Installer: j2sdk-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b83-win-11_oct_2001.exe
                 j2re-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b83-win-i-11_oct_2001.exe
      OS: Windows ME, 98 and 95 Japanese

      ====================
      Regarding J2sdk:
      ====================
      Installing b83 using j2sdk-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b83-win-11_oct_2001.exe on Win95, 98 and ME, you can see that most of the strings which InstllShield uses can not be converted.
      For example, a dialog box comes up and says as below;

      ----------------------------------------------------
      String PRODUCT_NAME was not found in string table.
      ----------------------------------------------------

      Here is the strings list.
      Each string is displayed on a daialog as a string which is not found in string table;

      PRODUCT_NAME
      COMPANY_NAME
      JDK_PATH
      COMP_XXXXX
      XP_XXXXX
      STATUS_XXXXX
      SETUP_JRE_MSG
      SETUP_JRE_DONE
      ......etc.


      Please install b83 using j2sdk-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b83-win-11_oct_2001.exe on Win95, 98 and ME and follow the installer's instruction as you usually do.
      Then, you'll encounter many dialog boxes with unconverted strings in installing process.


      NOTE:
      1) Installing can finish successfully, however, b83 is installed under the directory "JDK_PATH" (ex. C:\JDK_PATH) unless you chose another path manually.

      2) Launching Control Panel->Add and Remove Programs, PRODUCT_NAME is listed instead of "Java 2 SDK Standard Edition V1.4.0".
        Selecting PRODUCT_NAME and trying to uninstall, it can be uninstalled successfully though the same dialogs as seen in intalling appear.

      3) J2re is not installed and "Java 2 Runtime Enviroment Standard Edition V1.4.0" is not listed on Control Panel->Add and Remove Programs


      ====================
      Regarding j2re:
      ====================
      Installing j2re international version using j2re-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b83-win-i-11_oct_2001.exe,
      same kind of dialogs as seen in j2sdk installer are seen except intalling path.
       * Proper j2re path name can be got and intaller under "j2re1.4.0-beta3"
         (ex. C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.0-beat3).

      NOTE 2) problem above is seen ; PRODUCT_NAME is listed instead of "Java 2 Runtime Enviroment Standard Edition V1.4.0".


      Using j2re English version, j2re-1_4_0-beta3-bin-b83-win-11_oct_2001.exe, the problem is not seen.




      * This bug is not reproducible with b82 on WinME, 98 and 95.
      * Testing on WinNT, 2000 and XP japanese with b83 insatller, this bug is not reproducible.
      *This problem is like 4499731 which was seen in b78 and fixed in b79.
