Does InstallAnywhere 2021 require a full JVM (versus a JRE)?

Jump to solution

The .vm files provided by Revenera for Windows 64 are really just zip files.  I unzipped on and was surprised to find a full JDK - for instance, javac.exe was included.  Is there a reason for using a full JVM?  

It's both larger and I thought wasn't made for redistribution.

I needed to contact support for a different reason and got this question answered.

Yes, a JRE is all that's needed.  The .vm files provided for download are for 'our convenience' and some are full JVMs.

By using a JRE, I'll be able to make the size of my installer much smaller.
