Is it possible to install a JRE without modifying the Windows Registry?
I'm using InstallShield 11 Basic MSI to create an installation wizard. This wizard, among other activities, will install JRE 1.5. But how can I make sure that installing this JRE will NOT modify the “CurrentVersion” of My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment? Installing JRE 1.5 automatically bumps up the “CurrentVersion” to 1.5, but I would like the "CurrentVersion" to stay at 1.3, as other running programs are dependent upon earlier JRE versions. Thanks.
