      Description

      TEST ENVIRONMENT
      ----------------

      Multi-boot machine with Windows 2000 Pro installed on "E:" Drive.
      Other version of Windows should be installed on "C:". I used Windows 98 SE.


      When I install JDK 1.3.1_08 or JDK1.3.1_09 on Windows 2000 Pro I see wrong registry entries for Java Plug-in and Java Runtime Environment.

      I observe the following -

      In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\1.3.1_08
      JavaHome = E:\jdk1.3.1_08

      In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Plug-in\1.3.1_08
      JavaHome = C:\Program Files\JavaSoft\JRE\1.3.1_08

      In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\1.3.1_08
      JavaHome = C:\Program Files\JavaSoft\JRE\1.3.1_08
      RuntimeLib = C:\Program Files\JavaSoft\JRE\1.3.1_08\bin\hotspot\jvm.dll

      The correct entries for Plugin-in and Runtime Environment should point to "E:" Drive.
      The JDK seems to be installed into "E:" while JRE gets installed into "C:".

      I tested with 1.3.1_04 to verify the bug. I could not reproduce here. Java Devleopment Kit, Java Plug-in and Java Runtime Environment are all installed into "E:" Drive. Also are all registry entries correct and all point to "E:".

      I tested again with 1.3.1_05. However here I could reproduce the bug.

      So it seems that the bug was introduced in 1.3.1_05.
