    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      generic
    • OS:
      windows_2003

      Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1) Install jdk 1.3.1 to default directory.

      2) Install jdk 1.4.2 to default directory.

      3) Uninstall 1.3.1 using add/remove programs.

      4) Open a command prompt and type java -version.
      java is not recognized.

      5) Run regedit
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/JavaSoft/Java Development Kit
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/JavaSoft/Java Runtime Environment

      CurrntVersion Key is missing from both.

      I have tried this on Win2003 and Win2000, with 1.3.1fcs, 1.3.1_09 and 1.3.1_11 as the original jdk, and with 1.4.2, 1.4.2_04 and 1.4.1fcs as the updated jdk.
