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.
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.
It's fun to be me, and still legal in 9 states! Wanna see my tiny ad?
