      Note: The installation directory must be empty, and the user profile you are using to run the installer must have read/write permissions for this directory.
    2. Specify the path to the JDK to use with the NetBeans IDE. Accept the default setting or select a different location from the drop-down list.
      If the installation wizard did not find a compatible JDK installation to use with the NetBeans IDE, your JDK is not installed in the default location. In this case, specify the path to an installed JDK or cancel the current installation, install the required JDK version, and restart this installation.
    3. Click Next.
  5. If you did not choose to install the GlassFish application server in step 2, skip this step. Otherwise, on the GlassFish Application Server Installation and Configuration panel, do the following:
    1. Specify the installation directory for the application server: accept the default setting or browse to another installation directory.
      Note: The installation directory you specify must be empty, and the user profile you are using to run the installer must have read/write permissions for this directory.
    2. From the list of compatible JDK installations, choose the JDK you want the application server to use or click the Browse button to specify another JDK installation.
    3. Change the username and password for the default server domain or accept the defaults and click Next.
      The default username and password are admin and adminadmin.

    • To enable accessing the MySQL 5.0 Community Server from another machine, select the Enable TCP/IP Networking checkbox.
    • Specify the port number which the MySQL Server installation will use for connections. The default setting is 3306.
    • Click Next.
  7. At the Summary page, verify that the list of components to be installed is correct and that you have adequate space on your system for the installation.
  8. Click Install to begin the installation.
  9. When the installation is completed:
    1. If the GlassFish application server has been installed, you can register it. For this, select the Register the GlassFish and NetBeans IDE after finishing the installer checkbox.
    2. If the GlassFish application server has not been installed, select the Register the NetBeans IDE after finishing the installer checkbox to register the NetBeans IDE.

Upgrading and Coexisting with Previous Versions

NetBeans IDE 5.5 or 5.5.1, or 6.0 can coexist with NetBeans IDE 6.1 on the same system. You do not have to uninstall the 5.5 or 5.5.1, 6.0 versions in order to install or run NetBeans IDE 6.1.

If you have NetBeans IDE 5.5, 5.5.1, or 6.0, during the first run of NetBeans IDE 6.1, you will be able to choose whether to import user settings from the previous user directory.

Troubleshooting

About the Installer Working Directory

The installer stores data about installation sessions in the installer working directory. Examples of this data are the list of components installed on your system, installation log messages, and registry data.

The default location for the installer working directory is %USERPROFILE%\.nbi on Windows and ~/.nbi on other platforms. The log subdirectory contains the installation log files.

Cleaning Up After Incomplete Installations

After incomplete or unsuccessful installations, you might need to clean up your system from previous installations.

For Microsoft Windows, Solaris OS, and Linux:

  1. Delete the installer working directory.
  2. Delete the installation directories of the IDE and the GlassFish application server.
  3. On the Windows platform, delete all nbi* registry entries from the following registry keys:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

For Mac OS X:

  • Drag the program folders or files to the Trash.

Disabling Some Software Before Installation

It is better to disable firewall, antivirus, and monitoring applications before you start installation. Some of these applications can prevent IDE components from being configured correctly during the installation process.

For example, if you have the Logitech Process Monitor application (LVPrcSrv.exe) running on your system, switch it off before installation.
