Ahh, had not thought of that.
What you said on the set command, not my sloppy spelling.
Thanks Chuck.

I'm guessing the line of code:

if exist "%IZPAK_JAVA%\bin\javaw.exe"

does not work because of double quotes ?

Or perhaps a side effect of the spelling error? That is, %IZPACK_JAVA% <> %IZPAK_JAVA%

Or the opposite problem of what is alluded? That is, the lack of double-quote delimiting on the SET is an issue rather than the existence of the delimiters on the existence test.? Without delimiters, if the path has embedded blanks [e.g. \Program Files\...], then the value set for the one variable LOCAL_JAVA might contain only the characters up to the first blank in the value of the other variable IZPACK_JAVA [e.g.
such that LOCAL_JAVA becomes just \Program and the exists appended with \bin\javaw.exe checks for the non-existent \Program\bin\javaw.exe file?
I have no Win client on which to test. For both consistency and requirements to support a path with blanks, but perhaps the following modifications should be made in the .bat file?:

SET LOCAL_JAVA="%IZPACK_JAVA%\bin\javaw.exe"

IF EXIST "%IZPACK_JAVA%\bin\javaw.exe"

The following [effective; may require reformatting] web search reveals some possible issues [none mentioning IZPAK_JAVA so the above possibly originated as a transcription error into the message] and

The following link [from the above search] seems to confirm something similar to my suggestion above.
