The Best Answer is


I use the following steps to solve the problem:

First, Make sure

“Run this program in compatibality mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)” and “Run this program as an administrator” are ENABLED.

Run in Command Prompt

Do the following steps to resolve the problem

  1. Ensure that the JDK is already installed.

  2. If the installer is on a CD, Copy the EXE file for the Netbeans 6.5.1 installer onto your hard disk.

  3. Note the location of the installer.

  4. Open a Command Prompt running as administrator: Go to Start button > All Programs > Accessories Right click Command Prompt Select Run as administrator

  5. In the Command Prompt use the cd command to change to the directory containing the installer.

  6. Execute the following command to extract the contents of the installer: [Note: You might need to change the name of the installer to match the one you have.]

    netbeans-6.5.1-ml-java-windows.exe --extract

  7. Execute the following command to manually execute the installer:

    java -jar bundle.jar

You will see rapid scrolling output in the Command Prompt window for a few moments, then the installer window will appear to begin the installation process.
