Problem(Abstract)

Get PATH environment variable error message when installing the J2EE DC

Symptom

Can't install the J2EE DC.


Cause

This error happens because the PATH environment variable has exceeded the MS limit of 1023 characters.

Environment

Distributed - Windows only

Diagnosing the problem

This error happens because the PATH variable has exceeded the MS limit of 1023 characters. This is the error message you will see during the install.


Resolving the problem

To resolve the problem, edit your PATH variable to something smaller. Please follow these steps:

1. Open up your Notepad window and copy your PATH environment variable in here.

2. Count the number of characters in your PATH environment variable. You can copy all the characters and paste it into the box here at this website to count the bytes/characters:

http://www.javascriptkit.com/script/script2/charcount.shtml

You'll see that your count has exceeded 1023 bytes.

3. You'll have to edit the PATH to make it something smaller than 1023 bytes. Try changing the "Program Files" in your path to something smaller like "Progra~1". Look for other similar path edits.

4. Save your less than 1023 bytes new PATH environment variable back to your Windows system.

5. Now proceed your J2EE DC install again, this time it should work just fine with a smaller PATH.

Note: There is an APAR IZ57602 which fixes this problem on Unix but you have to use this technote for a Windows installation.
