JBuilder 2005 installation hangs after changing to Disc 2

Abstract: JBuilder 2005 installation hangs after changing to Disc 2

Problem Description:

While installing JBuilder 2005, the installation seems to go on forever after changing to Disc 2. In addition to that, the Windows Task Manager is not able to end the installation process.

After a reboot, it seems that only JBuilder 2005 has been successfully installed while the rest of the components like OptimizeIt, Fortify, etc. are not installed.

Solution:

JBuilder 2005 installations includes a JDK 1.4.2_04-b05. So if the system has J2SE 5.0 (either JRE or JDK) installed prior to installing JBuilder 2005, the registry�gets corrupted when JBuilder tries to update it back to JDK 1.4.2_04-b05.

Please perform the following in order to install JBuilder 2005 successfully:

1) Uninstall the partial JBuilder 2005 Installation.

2) Uninstall J2SE 5.0

3) Reboot the system.

4) Install JBuilder 2005.

5) Install J2SE 5.0 if needed.
