When attempting to install on Ubuntu 14.04, I get the following error stream...

Launching installer...

An internal LaunchAnywhere application error has occured and this application cannot proceed. (LAX)

This is a known issue with InstallAnywhere software. I have successfully tried installing the SDK on windows 10. Hack is to run the installer from CMD and explicitly providing path of java vm using LAX_VM:

C:\Users\hiaggarw\Downloads\fastcv-installer-android-1-7-1\fastcv-installer-android-1-7-1.exe LAX_VM "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_101\bin\java.exe" -i GUI
