HOTFIX: InstallAnywhere HotFix for Windows Launchers using Java 8 Update 112


This is the InstallAnywhere HotFix for Windows Launchers using Java 8 Update 112


This HotFix addresses the following issue:
IOJ-1782054Without VM installer and uninstaller fail to launch and display Windows error 2 when running with 32-bit or 64-bit Java 8 Update 112 on Windows


The HotFix is provided through a common patch installer for the following versions of InstallAnywhere and can be obtained by checking for updates from the InstallAnywhere IDE.
  • InstallAnywhere 2013
  • InstallAnywhere 2014
  • InstallAnywhere 2014 SP1
  • InstallAnywhere 2015 SP1
The patch installer for the HotFix will only patch one instance of InstallAnywhere at a time. That is, if the user has multiple InstallAnywhere versions installed, for instance, InstallAnywhere 2014 SP1 and InstallAnywhere 2015 SP1 are both present in the system, the user can choose to patch only one version/instance at a time. So, if the user chooses to patch InstallAnywhere 2015 SP1, the installer will install the patch for that chosen instance of InstallAnywhere 2015 SP1 and exit. To patch another version/instance of the product, the user should run the installer again.

Below are the direct download links for the HotFix installers:
