I am using izpack to create an installer for a SWING application.
I need to do the following with my installer...

1. The installer should check for the jre version installed in the client machine. If it is lower than 1.5, it should automatically launch the installtion of jre 1.5 which will be shipped on the CD.

2. It should check for the location of Winword.exe and AcroRD32.exe and paste the complete path as a value to a variable in the properties file.

Any help...

For checking if java is located or not you may use IzPack launcher which first verifies that Java is installed on the target machine
I agree. Here's the link:
