Problem:

When installing StarTeam on Linux CentOS 5.4, the following error is returned:
[root@sun-ns-testqb01 starteam]# ./StarTeamCP.bin
Preparing to install...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...

Launching installer...
Invocation of this Java Application has caused an InvocationTargetException. This application will now exit. (LAX)

Resolution:

The reason for this error is the user is attempting to run the installer from a non X-Console, when running from a native text console, it is not possible to draw X windows. To resolve this, you will need to use the graphical environment provided by the X Window System to allow the StarTeam installer wizard to install StarTeam.
