NetBeans 5 IDE on Windows XP - the installer is unable to run in graphical mode. Try running the installer with -console or -silent flag.

Hello! I had been working with NetBeans 5 Beta with the jdk_1_05_04 and  jre on Windows XP. When I tried to install NetBeans 5 (definitive version) I received the error:

the installer is unable to run in graphical mode. Try running the installer with -console or -silent flag.

So, I have uninstalled and installed all latest jdk (1_05_06) and jre software again, and after NB 5.0 IDE, but I can't install NB 5.0 IDE yet. The same error.


Anybody can help me?

Best Regards,
Artur Dietrich

just try changing the compactibilty option of the Installable(EXE) or setup file to win 98 or 2000 & try installing it.

You get this option by doing a rightclick on Setup file and there you have a compactibilty tab.

Even after this if it doesn't work just try changing your resultion in the compactibility tab.

Thank you.
