Hi,

You can do silent mode installation of InstallAnywhere 2011 by providing simple commandline flag.

For example:
For silent mode: install.exe -i silent
This will install InstallAnywhere 2011 in the default location. Form example in windows, it is C:\Program Files\InstallAnywhere 2011 Enterprise for Enterprise installer.

For console mode: install.exe -i console

Thanks,

If you look in /export/marst23ubn1/install.dir.27830/Linux/resource/jre/bin/java, it is there, so it must be trying to access something that is not available.

I have no idea how to figure out what it is looking for that it can't find.

Hi,

May I know your Linux system configuration? As per the issue I can guess that, your system may be a 64 bit Linux(RHEL6 probably). If so, then please try to install the InstallAnywhere installer, which is specially built for 64 bit Linux platforms.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks,

Yes, it appears to be 64 bit - I will have to tell the IT dept... They just gave me the exe - didn't think to check that!
