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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
