Installer fails to launch

Hi all -

I'm pretty new to InstallAnywhere, I used it quite a few years ago, but now we're using it pretty heavily at this new place.

Here's the issue I'm having, the installer fails to launch. When you double click on the install.exe file (we're just focused on a Windows deployment environment), it seems to be expanding (the progress bar goes to 100%), but then it just quits.

I looked in the %TEMP_DIR%//Windows directory and can see a installer_stderr.txt file is created.

Inside there, I can see the following:

preinstaller.properties not found.

Re: Installer fails to launch

It complains about a missing file: preinstaller.properties Would this be a file you use in your installer?

Re: Installer fails to launch

Actually, the problem was with a newly added signed jar (from ms).

Also, what's really interesting is we're building the installer with jdk 1.5 but the bundled vm used during installation is 1.6 (I'm not sure why, I'm inheriting this project).

Removing the signature fixed our issues.
