JRE not found - Windows installation of jruby 1.7.2

Hi,

I did install JRuby 1.7.2 Windows Executable+JRE (x64) [1] on
Windows 2008 and it did not work out of the box.

After the
installation (JAVA_HOME had not been set by the installer) I got ‘Cannot
find Java 1.5 or higher.’, setting JAVA_HOME to the JRE installed
together with jruby I got ‘Cannot locate Java installation, specified by
JAVA_HOME:’.

Interestingly it did work, when I set JAVA_HOME to the
directory above the JRE (The jruby dir). This doesn’t seem to be quite
right to me, or?

There is no other Java version installed on that
system. Details and log see below.

Regards,
Manfred

set JAVA_HOME=C:jruby-1.7.2jre

is
it missing backslashes?

No, must be a mail problem.

We had to release 1.7.3 for security reasons so I did not get this
particular launcher issue fixed (although I did fix another one). We
will try and get this addressed soon and rolled into a jruby-launcher
gem release so you won’t have to wait too long…I am fairly certain
your bug is JRUBY-7106 which involves a failing reigstry check.
