IA console mode install fails on AIX 7.2 with AdoptOpenJDK JRE packaged

Folks,

I am running a bin built with InstallAnywhere 2017 and a packaged AdoptOpenJDK 11 on AIX 7.2.

All goes will until I come to the "language selection" panel where it exists out with the following exception (I have LAX_DEBUG=true set):

CHOOSE LOCALE BY NUMBER: 2
Selected Locale = English
XMLScriptReader: unable to parse the provided script file. File may have been invalid...
java.lang.NullPointerException

Unable to load the script.

=======================================================
Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported
Unable to load and to prepare the installer in console or silent mode.
=======================================================

Here is how I invoke this and what uname gives me for AIX:

bash-5.0# uname -a
AIX xxxxxxx.com 2 7 00FA80A94C00

./myinstaller-on-aix.bin -i console

I did read about similar issues on RedHat in this forum and also tried to follow their potential solution cases, but nothing really helped (my DISPLAY environment variable is unset).

I also read that some of this might be due to the VM packaged.

Finally, we build the same image for xLinux and zLinux as well as Windows using also AdoptOpenJDK and there all works well.

Any ideas/hints or tips are much appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
-Matthias

InstallAnywhere 2017 is not compatible with Java 11 fully,  please upgrade to InstallAnywhere 2020 for better Java support.
