Run jdk installer on windows 7 zh_CN or ja. A dialog will pop up saying something like "The conversion program can not be applied, please check if path of the specified conversion program is valid".

Please refer to the snapshot.

The installer runs successfully in en and other locales.

Fix build to make jdk.msi include missing localized transforms.

Seems like new makefiles missing the final step to embed localized msi-s into the default on. I.e. need to add missing msitran.exe calls.

This seems to be caused by the recent msi makefile changes. The jdk msi installer is not created with the correct transform. Ask Alexey to take a look as he made the makefile changes. /install/make/windows/defs/msi.gmk /install/make/windows/defs/JdkMsi.gmk

Looks like the zh_CN and ja transforms might be corrupted?
