          Hi

          from the command line:

          If you have set the JAVA_HOME environment variable:

          java_ee_sdk-6u3-jdk7-windows.exe  -j %JAVA_HOME%

          Otherwise:

          *java_ee_sdk-6u3-jdk7-windows.exe -j +<PATH_TO_JDK_HOME>+*

          Exemple:
          java_ee_sdk-6u3-jdk7-windows.exe -j U:\java\jdk7

          Note
          For x64:
          java_ee_sdk-6u3-jdk7-windows-x64.exe -j %JAVA_HOME%
          Or
          *java_ee_sdk-6u3-jdk7-windows-x64.exe -j +<PATH_TO_JDK_HOME>+*
          Etc.

          Regards,

            Tried the advice, now it says "Could not find the required version of the Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment in 'C:\opt\jdk7'." where 'C:\opt\jdk7' is the directory I specified with the -j argument. Can the directory be empty or do I need to install something there first?

              han-dat
              C:\opt\jdk7 is where your jdk would had been installed. It cannot be empty and needs to contain a working jdk or jre.
              This is a chicken and egg problem. The installer uses the jdk/jre to install jdk and ee, but fails if it cannot find an existing jdk/jre. So install a jdk or jre first and try again.

                I added the environment variable and also reinstalled the Java SE JRE, but still get the null error when I try to install the Java2EE SDK. Do I have to reboot to have the environment variable take effect?

                  No, you only have to create a new command prompt. but you can just as easily do a 'set VARIABLENAME=VALUE' to make it active directly in your current command prompt session.

                    Ok, I misread the above, but got it straightened out. I'm having trouble figuring out exactly where the JRE was installed. A search in Windows Explorer turns up only a .msi file which the icon leads me to believe is just a version of the install file, and a .pf file in C:\Windows\Prefetch, neither of which I believe are the actual JRE. I have the following JRE directories and am not sure which is the correct one or if I have several versions of the JRE installed:
                    C:\Program Files\Java
                    C:\Users\{username}\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java
                    C:\app\product\11.1.0\client_1\jdk
                    C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Designer 8.2

                    I assume it's one of the first three, and I've tried each along with subdirectories (...\jre7\bin, ...\jdk, ...\jdk\bin) added to the each path, but keep getting the same error:
                    "Could not find the required version of the Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment in '{path}'"

                    Another forum said that I needed to download and install the 32-bit version of the JRE. I just tried that with the same error resulting.

                      It installed after rebooting my PC - not sure if it requires the 32-bit JRE - I may try reinstalling the 64-bit JRE sometime.
