Good day,
I have bing trying to package my project but i have being having errors.
I tried install4j and later tried installShield Professional but it can't just deploy/build the installation. It gave me this error:

An error occurred and product installation failed. Look at the log file C:\Program Files\GistMe Communications\Accounting Package\log.txt for details.

When i checked the log.txt file, here is what i saw:

"kesh",

There aren't may rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

CharSequence exists in jdk1.4 not in jdk1.3, so I think that you should

Check that
a) You're running InstallShield with the correct JVM.
b) Your JAVA_HOME is set correctly.

Having said all that. I really really dislike Installshield. The java installer it creates IMO is rubbish, not much better than just giving someone a zip file and adding a Main-Class directive to your jar.

Your error message looks like something I saw when I was trying to install an InstallShield packaged product on Linux, and get this... I had to put JDK1.3 to be first on my path with JAVA_HOME set to be JDK1.4 before the thing would install, and it didn't support console mode install properly, which is uber-annoying if you're installing something onto a DL380 200miles away.

None of that is probably anything to do with the product more to do with the installer-creator, but it sure as hell leaves a sour taste in my mouth regarding InstallShield. In fact just thinking about that frustration makes me want to let loose with a stream of vituperative bile.

PS - Bear, I thought General Computing would contain msgs about "what does Post beep "beep beep beeeeeep" mean?". This seems like a perfectly straight forward java question to me perhaps it should live in Ant/Maven/Other build tools.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
