      Description

      If user specifies his own installation directory with
      a trailing '\' in Windows installations, Java Plug-In
      Control Panel fails to load. Previous InstallShield
      versions would strip the trailing '\' but this version,
      Installshield 6, does not exhibit the same action.

      The registry key JavaHome located at
      HKLM\\Software\\JavaSoft\\Java Plug-in will now
      point to INSTALL_DIR\ Upon double clicking the
      Java Plug-In icon in the control panel, the following
      error message is thrown:
      "Could not find main class. Program will exit!"
