Unable to run ECM System Dashboard installer

Technote (troubleshooting)


When try to install ECM System Dashboard on Windows platform, you might encounter the following exception:

LaunchAnywhere Error

Windows error 2 occured while loading the Java VM


The installer is using the Java location specified in the PATH environment variable, specifically:


Then, the installer is appending \bin\java.exe to that directory path. But:

C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath\bin\java.exe does not exist. Hence, the installer fails to launch and instead displays this error

Resolving the problem

We can use the LAX_VM parameter when launching the installer from the command-line:

5.0.0-P8SD-WIN.EXE LAX_VM "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_60\bin\java.exe"

Then the installer will be launched successfully.
