non-pro version, running smoketest on some machines...
The complete message:

( Yes=Abort, No=Ignore, Cancel=Debugger)

The message should be written in the debug console, otherwise automatic testing
is impossible

This problem could be reproduced on a windows machine using cygwin. There was no
JRE installed locally. When building smoketestoo_native then the writer2latex is
installed as shared extensions. This requires Java. However, there is non on the
system (Windows registry) and the JAVA_HOME environment variable from the build
environment is not passed into the uno.exe process where the actual registration
of the Java component occurs. The uno.exe process is started from unopkg.bin.
See desktop/source/deployment/misc/dp_misc.cxx:raiseProcess.
It shows that no environment variables are passed on to the child process.

Comment 7 joachim.lingner 2009-03-19 12:06:31 UTC
Correction: unopkg starts uno.exe so that it inherits the environment. During
setup a custom action is performed that starts unopkg. This invocation is also
done in a way that the environment is inherited.
However, the environment of the console is not available in the msi process,
hence JAVA_HOME cannot be inherited.

This could be fixed by providing a global variable when invoking  the setup. In
the custom action one would read the variable with MsiGetProperty and put then
JAVA_HOME into the environment, so that unopkg inherits it.

The other issue is that, the unorc
is not cleaned up in case the registration of the Java service failed.

The current workaround is to have an Java 5 installed (including registry
entries) locally.

The problem with invalid UNO_JAVA_CLASSPATH entry assertion is addressed in
issue 107416.
