[protege-discussion] Installer location error in Vista

Hi Bill,

I'm sorry you are having problems.  I've just tried the installer on a 
Vista machine here and I can't seem to reproduce this problem, although 
I've seen it reported before.

1).  Are you running any anti-virus software?  If so, have you tried 
temporarily shutting it down and then running the installer?

2).  If you bring up a command prompt and type java -version, what do 
you see?
