Description mslama 2005-10-03 17:34:11 UTC
This combination si not supported so we must show error message in Welcome panel
and force to exit.
Comment 1 mslama 2005-10-21 15:41:29 UTC
Unfortunately running installer on 64bit JDK on Win XP x64 shows another
problem: When installer/uninstaller is exited even from Welcome panel window is
closed but Java process is not finished. It must be finished from Task Manager.
This behaviour causes weird troubles like locking some files which cannot be
deleted then till installer is killed completely. So I decided to add limitation
on 32but JDK only to JVM resolution files. It will make sure that
installer/uninstaller will not start on 64bit JDK on Win XP x64.

RELNOTE: We do not support installer/uninstaller for 64bit JDK on Win XP x64.

Fixed in main trunk.
