    Trying to install v3.3 (Compiere_330.zip) for an evaluation but can't get it to install:

    Oracle Linux 6R4 (i386)
    Oracle JDK 6u45
    Apache Tomcat 6.0.37
    EnterpriseDB (Postgres Plus) 9.2.1.3

    The pre-install checks all pass, but after accepting the license, the installer just freezes. The following is logged:

    Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NullPointerException

    We have also had the same problem on OpenSUSE and Ubuntu, so the eval is not going terribly well at present.

     
    • Chris,

      This is 3 year old release and it is hard to get copy of code for same to investigate issue. You should look at adempiere or iDempiere where you can find latest and live versions.
