Installing indexing program on Windows 7 Ultimate

Postby dbraddon » Mon Jul 21, 2014 12:37 am

I keep getting an error message "could not use bundled JRE" when trying to install the indexing program. Any ideas how to work around this?

Well, among other things I am a Java developer. JRE means Java Runtime Environment. Over the years Sun, and now Oracle, have released many versions of the JRE. Sometimes the newer versions have caused previously working code to stop working. As a workaround, some Java applications bundle a particular version of the JRE with the application to ensure proper functionality, rather than relying on whatever JRE may happen to be installed on a particular computer.

So, your error message may mean the install file you downloaded is corrupt. Try to re-download. Or, it may mean you have some kind of JRE version conflict on the machine. Harder to solve. Or, perhaps something on your computer is blocking the bundled JRE from being installed. This may be related to some feature in 7 Ultimate (I've never used Ultimate) or some other anti-virus, anti-malware, or security software may be blocking that version of the JRE. There have been some security scares regarding older versions of Java which may have led to overractions by security programs. As far as I know, the security issues pertain to applets, which the indexing program is not. Anyway, I've got the indexing program running fine on a couple machines with 7 Pro.

Any updates on this? I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 and I get them same message about bundled JRE and then I can't install the Indexing program.

I had the same issue.

I disabled my antivirus for the install and it works. Reenabling the antivirus (webroot) seems to be ok after the package installs.

My beef now is that there does not seem to be an option to install anywhere other then the C: drive. I install most apps in the D: drive due to the small size of my SSD for system and specialty applications.

The installer uses install4j and the standard command-line options work (see http://resources.ej-technologies.com/install4j/help/doc/index.html). For example the following installs it on the D: drive.

Code: Select all

Indexing_windows.exe -q -dir "D:\Program Files (x86)\FamilySearch Indexing"
