Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 52049] Incorrect setup instructions

Excuse me, yes, you are correct the windows installer will use the registry. 

In this case still exporting JAVA_HOME as a pointer to the base directory of a
JRE might cause problems. 
E.g. one might deflate the plain zip-file in parallel and start the
"statup.bat" (I haven't tested whether the registry value will be used by
"startup.bat" created by windows installer).

So if the value JAVA_HOME is not used I would like to ask you to remove it or
(as in case of the startup.bat file) to correct the information. 

Don't get me wrong, it is not a big problem to me. Usally I only refer to (the
very good) documentation of Apache projects if customers want to install an
application manually. And one (no pro in IT) has chosen to install it manually
and  get's an error that the JAVA_HOME should point to JDK instead of a JRE.
