JAVA Add-in For Central ABAP Instance installation failure

Hi! I'm attempting to install a java add-in to an ABAP central instance in our sandbox for NW04 SR1. After sapinst is started, the process runs for approximately 2 minutes then fails. I've not been successful in determining exactly why. I have environment variables set for JAVA_HOME, SAPINST_JRE_HOME, and even a specific TEMP directory with gigs of available space.

The process "reads the configuration", "creates working directories", "changes to those working directories", "prepares for installation", then starts a child process which immediately crashes.

The message I first receive is: Connection to SAPinst broken, please correct and restart....

within AIX, the message states iauxsysex.c:297 child 2519168 has crashed. Executable directory......Contact Support.

also. iaextract.c.883: child has signaled an exec error

Thanks if you can offer assistance.
