Installation of Pointwise on Debian linux
 
Hello,

I've a problem installing Pointwise 64bit on Debain linux. I know that Debian isn't officially supported by Pointwise but I guess someone can help me with this. When I run Pointwise .sh installation file as root I get the following output:

I've tried to run it with xterm but it didn't help.
My JAVA version:

java version "1.7.0_45"

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks

Jack it looks like the installer either doesn't like your java version or the wrong version is installed (I think the PW installer needs 32-bit java).

Either way the easy solution is to grab the PW installer that works when the system doesn't even have java installed. The installers are located here:

It didn't work.
I've downloaded 'pwflex-V11.11.0-linux_x86_64-jre.sh' from the website you posted, and when i execute with 'sh ./pwflex-V11.11.0-linux_x86_64-jre.sh', the same error occured. The screen shows
sh ./pwflex-V11.11.0-linux_x86_64-jre.sh

What should I do now?

notes: I was trying to install 'pw-V17.3R2-linux_x86_64-jre.sh' by execute 'sh ./pw-V17.3R2-linux_x86_64-jre.sh', and the screen showed the same error with @Turbulent posted.
My OS is Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit.
Thanks.

Have you solved the problem you posted? How? Thanks.

Based on the install name, you're still installing the wrong one. You need to install the the "nojre" version. Go to the link I posted and download the installer for your platform.

Yeah, I didn't notice that. I was thinking I need to install the software from the website you posted first, then I can install the first one. Working on it now.

But I wonder what's the difference between these two softwares which both labeled linux-64-bit. Is it possible to install the without 'nojre' version in my OS?

I checked my Java version, it says
java version "1.8.0_25"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_25-b17)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.25-b02, mixed mode)

Thanks.

There's no difference between the software. The difference is in the installer. The "nojre" does not have a Java Runtime Environment in the package and thus won't conflict with the version you have installed.
