We are attempting to install the Siebel Email Marketing Server components. We are evaluating the upgrade of these components in a development environment.

Server: Windows 2012 R2 x64
Java: Java SE JDK 1.8.0_92

We are able to launch the ESD install wizard and select the Java Machine (jdk1.8.0_92\bin\java.exe) and the target directory (D:\esd). Upon clicking the 'Next' button, the installation wizard hangs.
