Re: Problem with Eclipse WebWorks installation

[ Edited ]

If you are using windows 7 the fix for this is to edit the registry. Create the following string and run the install and that should fix it. In the second entry you can just copy the full path to your java install including the version number


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit] 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\1.6] 
"JavaHome"="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.xx_xx"

Re: Problem with Eclipse WebWorks installation

WebWorks need a 32-bit build of Java. Install a 32-bit JDK and it works. (I worked that out by looking through the MSI log file... would have been so easy if the error message just mentioned it...)

Re: Problem with Eclipse WebWorks installation

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit] 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\1.6] 
"JavaHome"="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_04" 
This method works for me.
