Could you please share the below information :
OS Version, Java Version/VM pack used, InstallAnywhere version and information on the command used/how you are launching InstallAnywhere.  Also attach the console.txt found in InstallAnywhere installation folder and the screen shot of the InstallAnywhere Build configuration tab as seen in the WithVM.png attached.

Could you please also try using the build executable found in InstallAnywhere home folder to build from command line (Eg: build.exe <path\project.iap_xml>) and attach the details shown in the console.
