Description ptbrunet 2009-08-24 23:56:21 UTC
Trying to install via netbeans-6.7.1-ml-javase-windows.exe but installer hangs at 0%.  

C:\Documents and Settings\Pete>java -version
java version "1.6.0_15"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_15-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 14.1-b02, mixed mode, sharing)

Please run installer with "--verbose --output out.txt" arguments and attach out.txt file to this issue.

It can be also helpful if you additionally run installer in the following manner (from command-line)
cd <dir-with-installer>
netbeans-6.7.1-ml-javase-windows.exe --extract
java -jar bundle.jar > out2.txt 2>&1
After it hangs, please press "Ctrl-Break" in the console a few times, then Ctrl-C.
Please attach out2.txt as well. 

Please also attach the screenshot of hanging.

Comment 4 ptbrunet 2009-08-25 16:28:11 UTC
Using the extract method is a successful workaround.  I will next attach out2.txt from that installation.

That could be related to WE4Java Screen Reader.
I`m not quite sure whether it is suitable to ask that but could you please turn it temporary off and try run installer 
again?

PS. Is that the right version that you use?

That was it.  I commented out that line in C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\lib\accessibility.properties and the problem went
away.
