[izpack-users] <executable ...> doesn't work

Hi Hans-Georg,
interpret I right that the main point for this email thread
has end in smoke? If so, nice...
I have to admit that there was a bug in the docu. Is fixed.

In the trace we dump things which are interested for one or more
of us.
Exceptions which are dumped only in the trace mode are catched 
because they do not avoid the installation.
One is the ResourceNotFoundException for the UninstallerIcon.
It is a feature which is not released for common. Therefore
no docu.
If you do not like this message, do not use the trace option 
or do not use the registry stuff.
Analog for the duplicate entries...
Do you have tested the uninstallation?? If so, why no word
about it?? 

OK, at what point we are? I do not know... my last mission to you
was "Do it, show it." You have done it, but not shown. Else you
have send only the part you have not understand and your 
uncomfortable feeling about IzPack. 
Therefore we cannot go to the next step of solving your problem
because it is common to complete one step before doing the
next. I have the problems you described a little bit not.

But I have the problem, that I have the feeling that you use
this email list to play beefing. Every email from you contains
some information and some lines where you describe how bad this
software is.
If it is really your meaning, may be it will be better to use
an other software. If needed, I can give you some URIs for it.

Good luck
