A few weeks ago I had to install an Oracle 11gR2 database on my local development machine. Unfortunately, the installer always crashed before starting the installation, causing an EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION in the 64-Bit Server VM (1.5.0_17-b04 mixed mode) on Windows 7.
After a few hours of digging around it turned out that I had to remove my "Downloads.lnk"-link from the Windows desktop to get the installer to work. This is just crazy!
I included the stacktrace in the full article, just in case this might be useful for somebody.

A minor update for PADEdit, which allows opening and editing of files which contain one or more special datasets of type 700. PADEdit now also remembers the last used file path in the file dialogs.
