Hi Willie, We are taking this issue to the product team in an effort to improve the install experience. Please let us know if there are any other concerns on how we can make our products easier to develop with.
Has there been any traction on this problem yet?
Why not simply put all the link-os-sdk dlls and sample code into a zip file.
Developers can then simply unzip it without needing Java runtime.
Note the Java website says free upgrades for Java are stopping for commercial customers from April 2019 making it even less secure.
