Most Java programs packaged for Windows come with some launcher EXE which seems to determine the location of the Java runtime in the registry. It would be nice if IKVM had some sort of installer mimicking the registry entries so it could just run those packaged Java programs without further user interaction.

    I'd like to add what I did to get the behaviour manually
    1. Set a registry entry. It sits in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\1.6, has the type REG_SZ, the name JavaHome and the content should point to the IKVM folder
    2. Set a symbolik link, named javaw.exe and java.exe, both pointing to ikvm.exe in the same folder
