Installer fails with "The wizard cannot continue... could not load wizard specified in /wizard.inf (104)". What's the problem?
It's a known bug #26965 .
There are 2 known issues that can cause this error:
- There's an older version of the SAX parser (sax.jar) in your JDK installation. This parser is incompatible with InstallShield. It can be found in the <JAVA_HOME>/jre/lib/endorsed directory. The workaround is to temporarily rename or remove the sax.jar file when installing NetBeans.
- Lately, users reported that the same error can occur if the login name of the current user includes special characters (such as '!'). The workaround is to install under a different name, e.g. as Administrator on Windows.
