CE 7.1 EHP1 installation on windows 7



I try to instal the 64.bits release of CE on a windows 7 laptop, in order to evaluate the opportunity to change all laptops for my developers.

Unfortunately I systematicaly have the same error :

Unable to find any Java instances on the host. Installation will terminate now.

I run the sapinst from installation DVD : CE71SR5_ESR_IM_WIN_X86_64

I downloaded and installed the jdk-1_5_0_15-windows-amd64

I set the SAPINST_JRE_HOME environment variable to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_15

I set the SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME to mypc

I set in hosts file the IP address to mypc.

Why SAPINST is not able to find the java instances ?

Thanks for your help.
