What works

Java .jar file opens and runs properly.

What does not

GUI Off-line Installer fails silently.  Hangs.  Process must be killed.

Workarounds

GUI Off-line installer fails but the "silent" install option installs all core components before failing to register the control panel applet.  

Install from a terminal like so:

wine jre-8u162-windows-i586.exe /s

Simplify java use by creating (or adding to existing semi-colon delimited path list) :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Envirionment

PATH=c:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_162\bin (REG_EXPAND_SZ)

Start jar with:

java -jar file.jar

What was not tested

Not sure.  JRE is vast.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
