Back to your problem. I do not hold grudges, and I would like to help anyone, including you. The dilemma I have is twofold.
1 Sure I can help you with the specifics, but the back-and-forth nature of the interaction required to take you from where you are (error msg) to where you want to go (successful installation), cannot be done reasonably in a forum or newsgroup.
2 There is a learning curve that you are faced with. We both know that there are hindrances to the learning process, so from the outset I know it will take a long time; and there are many obstacles to cross, which will make the journey even longer.
Therefore, the best considered advice I can give you is to get from where you are to where you need to go is, call Sybase Tech Support, they handle these problems free, and they are very helpful. In the same vein, if you were a customer, I would say, call our support line, we will help you free, we have people who are trained to help customers who are new to the software, Java VM, Installation difficulties.
Turns out that it's not rocket science after all...
Simple answer to a simple question...
The original question: How do I use the "JVM supplied with InstallShield"?
Below is the simple answer to the above question:
Below is a snippet from Sybase documentation...
JVM path installation issue
Problem: On some platforms, InstallShield may fail with a message that it cannot find a JVM (Java virtual machine). There is a JVM supplied with InstallShield, but there may be another JVM in the path.
Workaround: Restart the installer and include the following argument on the command line:
./setup -is:javahome /cdrom/JVM
Use the appropriate location of the JVM, which is on the CD.
