Error regarding the Java Home variable path

The following error comes up during the PPM installation. I am installing PPM 8 fresh on my windows virtual machine.

"is not a valid JAVA_HOME parameter value. The directory must include a bin/java file"

I have installed Java 6 update 2 and set the Java Home variable and path as following:

variable name: %Java_HOME%
variable value: c:\jdk1.6.0_02\bin

Re: Error regarding the Java Home variable path

Did you set it as Java_HOME or JAVA_HOME ? The two are different, and it needs to be all-caps...

Re: Error regarding the Java Home variable path

We are having the same issue on a Solaris 10 box when upgrading java for the latest SP. Java apparently added sparc9 into the java path. Has anyone else seen this.

We have java home set to JAVA_HOME="/usr/jdk1.6.0"
