Windows DLL failed to load attempting to install Identity Portal / Identity Governance

When trying to install Identity Suite Tools, Portal, Manger, or Governance on a Windows 2019 server using Wildfly 15 and the latest Oracle Java, JDK 1.8.0_281, the installer starts, then almost immediately throws a Fatal Application Error: 

Flexeraaw_$aaa: Windows DLL failed to load
at Source)
at Flexraaw_.aa(Unknown Source)
at source)



On Premises Identity Portal 14.x / On Premises Identity Governance 14.x
Windows 2019 
Oracle Java JDK 1.8.0-281 / 1.8.0-161



This issue is due to a bug with the InstallAnywhere software version used for the Identity Portal installer, run on a Windows 2019 server with the latest Oracle JDK 1.8.0_281 installed.
Java stack trace with Flexeraaw7$aaa: Windows DLL failed to load when running installer on Windows Server 2019 with JVM that outputs correct of Windows Server 2019


The issue only impacts the installer, products fully supports the newer JDK releases.

To workaround this issue, install JDK, 1.8.0_181

1. Open a command prompt, set this environment variable for Java:
SET JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS=" 7" and run the installer.

2. In the same command window navigate to the installer and perform the installation with an earlier version of the JDK. Then once the installation is complete you can update your Java to the latest release. 

Additional Information

Broadcom Development will review and resolve this problem for the next release of Portal.
