  • STS Installer with Windows 7

    It seems the Windows Installer copies the application servers into the "Program Files" directory, which leads to the following exceptions in windows 7 since it got some special policy for the "program files" folder: D:\Program Files\[...]\tc-server-6.0.20.C\conf\web.xml (Access is denied)
    after moving the tomcat folder out of the program files directory and updating the tomcat runtime environment i had to modify the classpath in the run configuration for tomcat since it still referenced bootstrap.jar and tomcat-juli.jar from the old tomcat location and i got this error:
    The archive: D:/Program Files/[...]/tc-server-6.0.20.C/bin/bootstrap.jar which is referenced by the classpath, does not exist.
    after fixing the classpath everything worked, but maybe the windows installer should get updatet to work around this issue, or maybe a FAQ entry would suffice.

    thx for listening..
