Power Monitoring Expert installer

There are three possible causes for this error:

  1. JavaRuntime is not installed, or only the 64 bit version is installed and not the 32 bit one.
  2. The User is not logged in as a Local Administrator.
  3. A newer version of Java (Java 8) is already installed on the server which is not recognized by the PME installer.


Prior to installing the required version of the Java or uninstalling the not required version, it is always helpful to know the current Java version running on the machine (if there is any Java version installed at all).

Method 1

In the command prompt (Start/Search>cmd), type, java -version

Method 2
Look into the control panel

Here are the Resolutions for the three possible causes mentioned above:

Resolution 1:
- Uninstall all instances of Java from the Program and Features option of control panel.
- Install the JavaRuntime manually from the PME 7.2 install media "..\setup\SetupSupport\Licensing\JavaRuntime\x86\jre1.7.0_02.msi". 
- Reboot the Server
- Run the installer again and the Floating Licence Manager will install successfully.

Resolution 2:
- Log in using a Local Administrator account (not a Domain Admin) and re-run the Floating License Manager installer. 

Resolution 3:
- This error also comes up if a newer version of Java is already installed. Uninstall the newer version of Java, then repeat steps 1.

Note : Please also make sure the installer is run as a local administrator
