Retain 3.5.1 only


I have Java 7 installed on my Windows 2012 server.  When I run the Retain installer, it tells me that I do not have Java 6 installed.  It then forces me to install Java 6.  Why is this?


Retain 3.x requires Java 6 build 38.  To avoid potential incompatibilities or issues with newer versions of Java, the installer forces the Java 6 installation.  Retain 4 will require Java 8 and will manifest the same behavior as the 3.5.1 installer, forcing the installation of Java 8 in order to avoid potential issues for a customer's Retain system.
