I quickly solved the issue by modifying the install check as follows underneath; did you make the same modification or did you solve it differently?

My Scripts have been slightly evolved. Now I actually decoupled settings from 
current versions so my settings.cmd now sources general-versions.cmd to be 
updated. I am used to define WPKG_PROFILE for customer-specific deployments. 
This allows me to simply create settings-%WPKG_PROFILE%.cmd for customers which 
require different Java settings as my defaults are quite restrictive:

- Dropped Java 1.6 as it's not under support any more
- No browser plugin is installed

So some customers might ask me to install Java including Browser plugins. Then I 
can just deploy custom settings.cmd using WEB_JAVA=1.

Latest scripts uploaded here:
