Description Petr Blaha 2004-08-31 15:41:34 UTC
Build 20040826 For installing JDK on Win2k and Win XP you must be logged as user with admin privileges. Installer installed only NB without JDK. No error message has been displayed. I suggest to add checking user's privileges before installing process. In case non-admin user the error message should be displayed.

what jdk installer says when you run it as a non-admin user?
Comment 2 Petr Blaha 2004-09-06 11:14:07 UTC
I tested JDK 1.4.2_05 FCS and 1.5.0 RC on my w2k machine. Both installation need admin user. See attachment.

Comment 4 mslama 2004-09-06 14:51:57 UTC
What to do? Shall I cancel jdkbundle installation (not allow to continue with Next button) or shall I allow to install just NB and not JDK? Where/when to popup warning message? (It is just Windows issue as on Linux/Solaris only dir with write permission is required.)
Comment 5 mslama 2004-09-06 15:00:46 UTC
When: JDK installer checks if user has sufficient privileges just during start.
Comment 6 Petr Blaha 2004-09-06 15:43:36 UTC
I think, you should use the simplest solutions. When installer starts, admin privelgies are checked. If user is logged as non-admin, display error message, like non-admin user attachement and exit installation.

Fixed. Custom welcome panel NbWelcomePanel is added and is used instead of default WelcomePanel. It check if current user has admin privileges on Windows. If not installer is stopped: User cannot continue. Only Finish button is available and and information dialog is shown. Also text in welcome panel is changed. Please reopen if some text of logic should be changed. Fix applies on all Windows versions. I tested only on Win XP.
