Issue/Introduction

When trying to install Identity Portal 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 Flexraaw_.af(Unknown Source)
at Flexraaw_.aa(Unknown Source)
at com.zerog.ie.installer.LifeCycleManager.init(unknown source)

...

Cause

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 os.name of Windows Server 2019

Environment

On Premises Identity Portal 14.2, 14.3, 14.4
Windows 2019 
Oracle Java JDK 1.8.0-281

 

Resolution

The issue only impacts the installer, Portal itself fully supports the 1.8.0_281 JDK.   

To workaround this issue, perform the installation of the Portal with an earlier version of the JDK such as version 1.8.0_181.  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.
