Description dexneo7 2006-10-30 23:48:07 UTC
I'm running Windows Vista (64bits Ultimate Edition) on a Pentium D (3.0GHz) with
2GB RAM (533MHz).
I downloaded the JDK6 (64bits) and tried to install the
"java-tools-bundle-windows" and I get the next error: "The installer is unable
to run in graphical mode. Please check the value of the DISPLAY environmental
variable" (The compatibility setting is off for the administrator and all users,
the Aero Appareance is disabled, User Account Control is also disabled).
I also tried with the JDK6 (32bits) and it didn't work.
By the way, the netbeans-5_5rc2-windows installer is suggesting me to run with
"silent" option.

Where have you got this version? It is not clear to me what installer you use.
What build of Vista do you use? Is it some RC or is it released version? Our
installers are based on InstallShield 11 Universal and it does NOT run on 64bit
JDK. It should work on 32bit JDK.
Comment 2 dexneo7 2006-11-12 18:11:01 UTC
I got the installer at the next address: (Java Aplication Platform SDK ->
"Download with tools").
I was also trying with the "netbeans-5_5-rc2-windows" installer, and it didn't
work either.
My current version of Vista is: 6.0.5600 Build 5600 (Microsoft Windows Vista
Ultimate), RC1.
My JDK version is: build 1.6.0-rc-b103 (It's already set in the CLASSPATH,
JAVA_HOME and Path Envirnomental Variables ). I have both, the 64bit JDK and the
32bit JDK installed.
Comment 3 mslama 2006-11-13 09:02:59 UTC
Ok. Please first check if Compatibility modefor installer exe is switched off.
Win Vista RC1 for some reason switches Win XP compatibility mode on for our
installer exe. It must not be switched on. Also switch Compatibility mode off in
"Setting for all users". (To do that invoke popup menu on installer exe, go to
Properties dialog and select Compatibility tab.)
Comment 4 mslama 2006-12-07 10:51:15 UTC
No response regarding compatibility mode. I assume it is duplicate of issue #85361.
