I have a 32bit machine installed with 64 bit suse10 linux. I then tried installing a 64bit sybase on it but the sybase installation fails the moment i launch ./setup with below error: Searching for Java(tm) Virtual Machine... ........ Running InstallShield Wizard...

An unhandled error occurred -- specify system property "is.debug" for more information.

the install shield wizard fails to launch..

I tried replacing the JVM folder in sybase installation dump but it doesn't help. how do i use this is:debug property?

has any one encountered such an error?

problem solved. probably due to permissions not available on the dir along the path of install dump or on /tmp.
