What cause the error, "Windows error 3 occurred when loading the Java VM?" when installing the web client?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: CaliberRM
  • Product Version: All
  • Product Component: Installer
  • Platform/OS Version: All

This error is caused by a known issue with software that has been packaged with LaunchAnywhere launchers that shipped with InstallAnywhere 6. The problem mainly occurs on machines that have Java 1.5 installed but it can happen with other versions.

To resolve the problem follow these steps:

  1. Open a command prompt.
  2. Navigate to the folder the installer is located in e.g.

    C:\Program Files\Borland\Installations\CaliberRM 2008\CaliberRM Web
  3. Run the installer with the LAX_VM option, for example:

    setup.exe LAX_VM "C:\Program Files\Javaj2re1.4.2_08\bin\java.exe"
  4. The application should now start to install.
