Problem


Installation of StudioJ, GridJ, ChartJ, BlendJ or DBToolsJ does not work and you get a Failure in reading CD Tracking Number File message.


Cause


The Edition 1 CD was mastered as High Sierra/ISO 9660 format and without Rock Ridge extensions. The file name mangling will turn files names such as unlockcodes.txt into an 8.3 filename like unlock~1.txt.


Action


To get around this problem, copy the mac.zip file to somewhere on your file system. Also copy the unlock~1.txt file to the same directory and rename it unlockcodes.txt. On Unix only, also copy the setup.sh file to this directory.

Unzip the file by typing unzip mac.zip. If you do not have unzip, you can find the source or precompiled binaries at http://www.cdrom.com/pub/infozip/UnZip.html

Once unzipped, you can run setup.sh if on Unix, or java setup, or whatever java virtual machine you have installed on your system, and complete the installation. Make sure your CLASSPATH is correct.

Also make sure that you only select the product for which you have the unlock code. For example, if you only purchased BlendJ, unclick StudioJ and click BlendJ before putting in your unlock code.
