When trying to install SPSS (a statistical analysis package) using
sudo ./SPSS_23.0_LNX.bin I get the following:
Preparing to install... Extracting the JRE from the installer archive... Unpacking the JRE... Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive... Configuring the installer for this system's environment... Launching installer... JRE libraries are missing or not compatible.... Exiting....
OpenJDK 6, OpenJDK 7, Oracle Java 7, and Oracle Java 8 are all installed on my machine. I tried the install with each of them as default, successively ( I did set the JAVA_HOME environment to the appropriate path each time). Every time I got the the same output and error message.
It looks that the JRE is packaged in the installer, which would mean that there is something wrong with the libraries in the packaged JRE. Then there wouldn't be much I could do about it. Does that make sense?
