Activiti 5.3 install does not work due to bad version number

Hi everyone,

I have an interesting problem to report. I unpacked activiti 5.3 first thing this morning. I tried ant demo.install and that failed (after I cleaned up I tried again with ant demo.start just in case … but no luck). The first error that occurs is:
org.activiti.engine.ProcessEngines initProcessEnginFromResource
INFO: Exception while initializing process engine :Bad version number in .class file
I am using JDK 1.5.0_11 which worked fine till activiti 5.2 (and which I am not able to change due to missing privileges)
and JRE 1.6.0_18 and ant 1.8.2.

This setup worked (and works) with activiti 5.2. Are there any steps I can take to solve this? Or am I bound to activiti 5.2 (maybe I try to simply copy a newer JDK from another computer without installing it …)

Kind regards
