JDK on WAS 6.40 with NW SR1

I installed JDK 1.4.2_06 which is the stated version on note 716604 for NW04 SR1, and when I get prompted for the JDK directory on SAPINST.EXE from Installation Master for I386, then start the startinstgui.bat, (I get the following error within the sapinst.exe welcome wizard;

Directory C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_06\bin is not a valid JDK directory: the java executable is missing

This was the directory sapinstgui.bat ran with JAVA_HOME C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_06\bin\java.exe

Weird? Why is the directory with java.exe accepted by SAP GUI, but not by the sapinst?

JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_06

PATH=C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_06\bin

We are new to SR1, any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

James

    Hi James,

    You stated the path to the jre instead of the sdk.

    That would make it:

    JAVA_HOME=C:Program FilesJavaj2sdk1.4.2_06

    PATH=C:Program FilesJavaj2sdk1.4.2_06 in

    So the error is correct....

    Hi James,

    I believe that you need to download and install the j2sdk1.4.2_06 not just the JRE.

    Cheers
