Can't Install J2EE

I downloaded the 1.4 version of J2EE from Sun. It arrived in a file named
j2eesdk-1_4-dr-windows-eval.exe. When I run the exe it complains that it can't find the 1.4 jre. The exe allows for a -javahome parameter. I have tried both c:\jdk1.4.1_01 and c:jdk1.4.1_01\jre. Both get the same error.
Anyone have an ideas about fixing this.
I don't see anything in the 1.4 J2EE tutorial or sun's download page about this problem.

Did you try with j2ee.jar in the classpath??

I wonder why the name of the executable ends with the suffix "-eval"? :roll:

where j2ee.jar file comes from ... before installing ?

It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one....
I agree. Here's the link:
