I just downloaded the b21 JRE, and it refuses to install. When I click accept, it instantly comes back with "the wizard was interrupted before java(tm) 6 update 10 could be completely installed. to complete instalation at another time, please run setup again."

No errors reported by the installer, but the windows event viewer has this:

Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: Java(TM) 6 Update 10. Product Version: 6.0.100. Product Language: 1033. Installation success or error status: 1603.

Running Vista SP1 32-bit fully patched, core 2 duo 3gb ram. I've got a bunch of Java versions installed (it's my dev box), including 6u4 and 6u5 as well as 6u10 beta JDK. Tried uninstalling the old 6u10 beta, still failed.

I downloaded the Sun offline jre 6u11 installer from java.sun.com: jre-6u11-windows-i586-p.exe

It FAILS when installing on my WinXP SP3, with the following message:

"The wizard was interrupted before java(tm)6 Update 11 could be completely installed. To complete installation at another time, please run setup again. Click Finish to exit the wizard"

Previous install versions were successful. I cleaned them off, and the 6u11 installer still blows up.

* My control panel does NOT contain any Java Icons for managing java versions.

* I do NOT have any java/bin folders included in my PATH environment variable or its other nested env. variables

* I do NOT have any java files or folders in my C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder

* I do NOT have any java plugins registered in my Internet browser

* I do NOT have any java Windows Services running/existing

? Should I edit the Windows registry and do a search on the word "java" and do a "replace all" with an empty string?

To "install" a jvm, I have to get my coworkers to zip up their jvm and email it to me. Then I include that directory on my system path. Of course this doesn't allow me to use java WebStart.

Does Sun offer a zipped jvm that I can just extract? What all is their current installer doing other than pasting the jvm into a folder?

Thanks

Nothing worked when I ran the sun jre6u11 se offline installer about 15 times -- it blew up every time.

I got the Sun jre6u11 se installer to run a successful install after I searched through my entire WinXpSp3 registry and deleted every key containing the word "Java".

I use MaxRegClean to keep my registry nice and tidy. It make your computer seem to run faster and I never have any trouble installing Java...

Which installer were you using? We have three: Kernel, Online or Offiline?

eep, I knew I forgot something :)

It was the offline installer. Didn't think about trying the others, figured a reboot was the first thing to do.

Now that b22 is out, do you still experience the same issue?

The offline installer for b22 worked here, except that FireFox 3 (beta5) reported a crash when Java tried to restart it to verify the installation. The installation nevertheless seems OK (and working in the browser).

(On Vista SP1)

weird... I rebooted and it installed fine. Must've been an application that had a file open and the installer didn't pick it up - in which case the error message (or lack of one) was wrong.
