Description (last modified by oranfry) (diff)

Diego reports:

If you run the installer (v2.81) from a cd or a pen drive, it can´t find Java, because I think it assumes that Java must be in the same drive from where you run the installer. So, you must copy the installer to local hard drive (MUST be c:\) and there, it will find Java ok!.

It should give the choice to select where Java is if it can´t find it.'

Test this and make sure the installer works from pen drive.

This could be a more general problem of installing from non-writable medium.

Now use the user temp directory for all temporary files (%TMP% on windows, $TMPDIR or /tmp on unix). This should fix the problem.
