Hi,

I am getting the following exception while trying to install jdk-1_5_0_07-windows-i586-p.exe on Windows-XP Version 2002 Service Pack 2.

In the Install Wizard, when i click on Next button, I get a box with "Semi-Colon found in selected path" at the top left, and in the middle "A path with a semi-colon in it, is not supported for this product. Please select a directory path without a semi-colon.". It ends up installing the Development Kit when i click on OK button in dialogue box.

I have uninstalled all the java versions i had in my system and rebooted the system, then tried to install java but of no use.


Any Suggestion in this regards would be helpfull.

In which directory are you trying to install the JDK?
Does the path where you are trying to install it have a semicolon ; in it?

Hi Jasper,

I am installing it at the default location specified by the Wizard. Also, i have tried installing it directly to C:\ folder. I didnt not had any semi-colon in the path i gave.
One more thing i have not specified and may be useful to you guys in debugging is, i have selected "Typical" while installing java at the place where i got two options(Radio Buttons) viz., 1) Typical and 2) Custom.
