Hi,

I am trying to install the new Java 8 EA B77 on a machine with
Java 8 EA B75. It claims it is already installed and to delete
the old one first.
I would like to have both installed until I have tested the new
version.

Regards
Don

Yeah I saw that too. I hope it doesn't stay that way when Java 8 goes GA. I guess for now you could install on another machine and copy/paste the jdk folder and set JAVA_HOME manually.
