Installer throws InvocationTargetException on Linux.

When I run the installer generated using InstallAnywhere 2012, it throws the following exception almost as soon as the installation begins after pre-install steps are completed on Linux console:

[Invocation of this Java Application has caused an InvocationTargetException. This application will now exit. (LAX)

Stack Trace:
java.lang.NullPointerException

Please let me know how to debug this issue. There is no other information even if I enable debugging.

i faced similar issues while i was modifying installer for adding linux as platform.
As a workaround, i created a separate project for linux installer and it is working. Still clueless about error
