GS3 install fail on Windows XP
|Reported by:||anonymous||Owned by:||oranfry|
Using the Windows binary from sourceforge (v3.02) it installs correctly but then fails because it can't locate a Java Runtime Environment.
The Library itself exits with no information at all (should be more informative error handling here) and starting GLI produces the text below.
The file path separators look odd - the Perl one has both forward and backward slashes.
This is an especially bad error as checking for Java is the very first thing the installer does, so somehow GS has forgotten this information by the time it starts to run.
