I was given a task to create a finance demo environment with PeopleTools 8.49 on Windows 2008 R2 machine with a plan upgrading the same later to PeopleTools 8.53. I created the database, installed web logic server and everything went fine. But when I tried installing the Tuxedo 9.1, it was throwing the errors as mentioned in the below screenshots.
I had installed the same earlier and it used to take hardly 5 minutes, but this time it took almost an hour in the first step (below) - GUI mode.
I decided to install the same in command prompt, but resulted the same with below message.
Please find the error message screenshots below. I have come across java null exception kind of messages in web server domain but when I experienced in Tuxedo install, I was completely lost.
Guys… Don’t panic if you get into this situation. The solution is so simple and please follow the below instructions to resolve it.
Select the select file --> right click --> properties, select compatibility tab and check the compatibility mode tab, change the OS as Windows server 2003, then apply. Now start installing and it will go smoothly without any issues.
