No JAVA_HOME defined error

Some help packages might be built without the required Java™ JRE. Building packages without the required Java JRE saves on package size and assumes that most systems already have a JRE installed.

If a JRE is not installed or the JAVA_HOME environment variable is not set, you might see an error message when you start the local IBM® Knowledge Center. For example:
Error: No JAVA_HOME defined

Resolution

Ensure that a JRE is installed and the JAVA_HOME variable is set. For example:

Variable: JAVA_HOME

Value: C:\Program Files\IBM\JAVA71\jre
