J2SE 1.4.2 installer nonsense

Nevermind: go here instead

Just installed 1.4.2 with the install shield. And immediately uninstalled it.

  • I wasn't asked where to install to.

  • I have to restart my computer to complete the install.

Oh dear. Back to 1.4.1 then.

[Later: I should have said - I'm using the offline installer]

Hmm, that's strange, I installed it and it let me choose the dir and didn't restart... win2k

it lets you choose the directory though it is masked you have to really pay attention during the install, you'll see where you the dialog is.

Agreed. I installed it on win2k, choose the location (although I admit this was almost be accident) and I didn't need a restart. Give it another go. Of course, there's always the old-style, all-in-one offline bundle.

You missed it then. I was allowed to put it where I wanted during the install.
