Creating some large dummy files to reduce the free disk space to 7 Gig allowed
the installer to run successfully.

Stop installation, drop available space to <8GB, restart installation.
It worked for me with 7.7GB available.

I believe this bug is present on all win32 platforms. See also bugs 4415692, 4362393 and 4400299
I've tried to reproduce this on Win2k for our jre131fcs.exe with 4GB, 4.3GB, 7GB, and 8GB of free space on the C: drive. Unfortunately I did not see the error message. Clearly this is a package for the web problem. Even if we could reproduce it is not something we could fix, because it is install shield specific. Hopefully, with our upgrade to Package for the Web 3.0 for Merlin beta3, this problem won't occur anymore. I did not see anything about this bug or a fix at install shield's support web site. However, I read the following line in the Package for the Web 3.0 release notes:
Fix - Free disk space check works correctly
Previously, the disk space check would fail if disk space less than the size of the package was available.
It appears that they have changed the disk space check code, so hopefully this problem got fixed. I am closing this as not reproducible.
This is fixed in Merlin beta3 and subsequent releases. At this point, 1.3 releases may still run into this problem. We may merge this fix back to 1.3 releases in the near future.
