Reality Installation issue – “Windows error 2 occured while loading the Java VM”

The current ISO based installation for Reality V15.1 on Windows uses Java as part of the install process and this may lead to installation issues.

The installation process will use its own version of Java temporarily if Java is not already installed on the target system. However, only versions up to and including Java 1.7 (SE 7) on the target system are compatible with the installation process. Unfortunately, if Java 1.8 (SE 8) or later is installed, the Reality installation process will fail with the error

LaunchAnywhere Error - WIndows error 2 occured while loading the Java VM

The current solution is to remove the incompatible version of Java from the target system before starting the Reality installation process. After Reality has been successfully installed, Java can be installed again.
