Hi Klaus,
> Fails the installation general or can you install under your user path?
After investigating a little bit I noticed that the installation fails in general, if you choose to install the application in the suggested "program files" directory. If you install it into your profil still works fine.
One thing is very strange:
In German the File Dialog represents "C:\programme" as "C:\programme". But it seems that this is only a kind of "translated" link to "c:\program files". What happens is that the izpack is not able to create a subdirectory in "c:\programme" (what I chose). If I use another installer (like nsi) I can choose "c:\programme", but it changes to "c:\program files" when I select the directory from file dialog. I am not an expert in these kind of things, but perhaps this is the difference if you use "file.getCanonicalFile()" instead of simply to use a file instance?

	Dear List,
	yesterday I tried my installers at Windows Vista with Java 6 and it seems as if they do not work anymore. I enabled tracing, but all I got was a FileNotFoundException. It seems as if there are problem regarding creating directories in "c:\program files". Usually, you get a popup asking you whether you want to allow writing to this directory, but not when using izpack installers. Instead, you get an error message.
	I hope you can help me...
	Best regards
