Installing Java?
« Topic Start: September 17, 2011, 01:38:20 PM »
Hi all,

For some reason the Java install is bugged. It downloads the installer, then the file gets deleted and nothing happens. And Java still is not installed.

Suggestions?

Edit: Currently trying the Offline install. Result:

"Error 1330. A file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file C:\Documents and Settings\...\Application Data\Sun\Java\...\Data1.cab has an invalid digital signature. This may indicate that the cabinet file is corrupt."

Uninstall all java editions you can find, delete any remaining files (like the one below), then download a fresh install.

The odd thing is...I can find any editions on the machine. Have deleted most files...

Attempting redownload...

Result: Still no workie.

It it seems as though this is widespread problem with the crappy software (or to be more exact, the certification). I am currently wading through sites trying to find things that will make it work. So far one of them has failed, even though it apparently worked for others.

jre-6u27-windows-i586-s

Otherwise known as Version 6 Update 27

I''ve been putting off formatting my pc for a long time (even though it needs it), but I reckon now would be a good time. So if I try run it and it still doesn't work, well...

May as well. I always put off a good backup/format until something pees me off, now seems a good time for you :P

You need to also check your registry for anything java related.

Well, if you consider that I am still running XP ;)
There is a license agreement that allows me to get it free legally, except the people who have it haven't paid for it lately, so waiting on that...

Sounds almost like a PATH issue...
Born in Day they knew the Light; Rulers, prophets, servants, and warriors.
Life in Night that they walk; Gods, heretics, thieves, and murderers.
