i downloaded the windows installer, have the 1.5 java, and it hangs up installing.
using beta0.9.6c by the way
Same here, hangs on making the ID.
It is surely a JVM related bug... not an Ants one, cuz it appeared after the jdk1.4.2 -> jdk1.5 switch and it happends ONLY with jdk1.5 on linux or sparc machines. So I cannot be helpful... just try different configurations... changing java/machine etc... it is not inside the ANts code anyway... that's sure!
