Silent Installation Failed on Windows

Yellowfin FAQ shared this question 4 months ago

Hi All,

We are attempting to run a silent installation of Yellowfin on a Windows 2008 R2 system running jdk 11.

When executing the command within the command prompt we are running into this error:


When we run the installer via the GUI the installation is successful.

This error is being thrown by the Java on the system. When encountering Java.exe errors like the one posted, the first thing we want to do is ensure we are running a compatible version of java on the operating system.

Oracle Documentation will tell us which JDK's and JRE's work on what Operating System. Java JDK 11 and 13 aren't compatible with Windows 2008 R2 which is why we are encountering the error. With Windows 2008 R2 you would want to use an older version of java that is compatible with the OS, like JDK 8.
