1.4.2 SDK requires recent wininet.dll?!
Trying to run j2sdk-1_4_2-windows-i586-iftw.exe resulted in the message "1643:
Setup requires a newer version of WinInet.dll. You may need to install IE 3.02
Since when does Java require IE to run?
I didn't have this problem installing 1.4.1. Any way around this?

I don't know the details behind this, but I would guess that Sun
figured out that one of their problems with the Windows TCP/IP
implementation goes away when using a "newer" dll. Not that a DLL from
IE 3.02 is really new.
Or Sun uses some installation software that for whatever reasons
requires this dll.
Have you checked the release notes that come with 1.4.2 or the
BugParade? Maybe they contain an explanation.

I don't think they require IE, but ran into a typical Microsoft
problem. Installing / updating IE is always like a full massive upgrade
of the operating system. Many Windows libraries are changed. And
unfortunately Microsoft doesn't release several of the updated system
libraries seperately as independend patches.
I would guess that Sun couldn't find any other Microsoft patch than IE
3.02 which contains that library. And of course Sun doesn't want to get
into problems with Microsoft by taking that library out of IE
(breaching some Microsoft license) and silently installing it with the

Unless it was done by mistake, I guess Sun has very good reasons to
require this. I would not try to attempt to circumvent this.
