Installation problems on Solaris x86/64 bit

Hi all,
I'm trying to install my product on Solaris x86 with a 64 bit JVM but some problems occur:

- I add some files and set their attributes to 777 but when installed are set to 644 so I can't execute them
- The uninstaller .bin is not created (only uninstall.jar)
- In the summary pre-installation panel the size shown is 0 KB but all the files are copied.

The uname -X command shows

System = SunOS
Node = imspmu2
Release = 5.10
KernelID = Generic_118855-36
Machine = i86pc
BusType =
Serial =
Users =
OEM# = 0
Origin# = 1
NumCPU = 4

The same InstallShield project, with different JVM resolution and Platfrom release, works correctly on a Solaris SPARC.

Can you help me?

I always found that setting the attributes did not work as well as advertised. I usually ended up doing an execute command after the install doing a chmod on the files that needed to have specific permissions.

I have also noticed that sometimes the size displayed was off, I can't say that I ever saw 0 but sometimes it reported weird numbers.

Have you looked at the uninstaller information in your project? Make sure that a .bin file is listed for the uninstall, I think there are different options for Sparc vs X86, but I can't remember for sure.
