The install simply fails.
I'm running JDK 1.3 on Windows 2000 and thats about all I can tell you. I've included all the info I have below.

C:\junk>java -cp . Install
try path C:\junk\ set Url base to
MalformedURL ; java.net.MalformedURLException: no protocol:
can not get flavour null for os Windows 2000

    Classic VM (build JDK-1.2.2-W, native threads, symcjit)

    When setting the URL, did you use the following method:
    URL url = new URL("file:C:/path_to_stuff");

    Failed here on FreeBSD 4.3 with native 1.2.2 JDK, too. But
    with different cause.

    bash-2.04$ java Install
    try path /home/me/projects/installer/
    set Url base to
    exception in called method installer.Install2.main
