Heapsize leads to abort of the OpenWebstart installation

Post by Michael.Franke »

Hello,
we have a problem installing OpenWebstart via Microsoft's SCCM software distribution tool.
Unfortunately, a problems occurs with some installations. I observe that the installation works on computers with "Lenovo i7 16GB" hardware, with "Lenovo i5 32GB" hardware the installation fails.
The following error occurs during the installation process: The JVM could not be started. The maximum heap size (-Xmx) might be too large or an antivirus or firewall tool could block the execution.

No firewall or antivirus program is used, which could hinder the execution.
I suspect it is related to memory management during installation. Could it be?
Does anyone know this kind of problem?
Is there a way to limit the maxHeapSize when installing OpenWebStart?
Can the response.var file be used for this?
Unfortunately, I can't find any reference to this in the documentation.
I would be very grateful for a hint.

Regards
Michael

You must be running the OWS installer for Windows.

install4j creates a log file prefixed with i4j_log in the temporary directory when an installer application is executed. This log file can be helpful for debugging purposes.

Also I found the following. See if it helps
