I have been having problems with Java as well. The problem I am having is for some reason when I try to do anything associated with java, even run the test they give you after you install java to see if it's working, all of my browsers close. I'm using firefox, but there are problems when I try to use IE also. I don't think it was windows 7 that did it because when I first downloaded it, it was working fine.. but now its broken or something...

A possible fix?

Hi All,

Sorry for dragging up a new post, but I have had a similar experience and wanted to help anyone else who has had this infuriating problem.

My 32-bit install wouldn't work at all. I would double-click on the installer file, the 'spinner' would show the computer was doing something then nothing would happen. I tried redownloading, didnt work. I tried running JavaRA to remove and registry entries or BHO's that were causing a problem. Didn't work.

So I did a process monitor (thanks sysinternals) to try to find why the installer wasn't working and made a nice discovery. No idea why it wouldn't install, but ... I found the files are extracted from the downloaded binary and are expanded into a directory. And because the installer dies before running the files, it leaves them there.

So I just ran this file (I was updating jre1.6.0_26 as you can tell):

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\jre1.6.0_26\jre1.6.0_26.msi

And the installer started working! It all installed fine!

Of course change the Java JRE version to what versuion you are using. Hope this helps. It did in my case.

Cheers

Terry

Terry, you're the best! Thanks. I must've lost my rep privileges else I'd give you some. (weird, I'm logged in and, after reading my post, the only one I can rep is myself but only in this thread - everywhere else is fine ... )

Regardless, a huge thumbs up! Again, thanks!

Rep isn't available to posts older than 28 days, so the rep icons don't show up on the posts, and it isn't possible to rep yourself.

Thanks, Airbot. I didn't try to rep myself, it's just that the icon shows up. Hadn't noticed that before - I always thought the icon was missing on one's own posts. Mea Culpa, I've been gone awhile ...
