Any more information on this error? I am also seeing this error when running the installation on a Windows 7 x64 machine that has JRE 126.96.36.199 (x86) installed on it. The error is seen during the installation procedure when the SAS created setup.exe is trying to execute jre-6u20-windows-i586-s.exe*32 (as seen in the task manager). The setup freezes at this point, if "OK" is clicked on the error dialog box then the setup seems to complete and the program can be launched. If I remove the JRE from the machine, then run the setup.exe from SAS the installation completes without error.
