    Unable to install JRE

    Hello.

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but it appeared to be the closest match.

    Has anyone here been unable to install JRE on their Windows XP system? If you were finally able to install it, how did you go about it. I went to java.com and tried the install, but it fails every time.....

    Just curious, as I cannot get it to install. The install always fails at the end of the install process (with just a generic error message).

    I haven't had any fails with installing a jre. What version are you trying to install? What does the error message say exactly?
    You could try the SDK equivalent of the JRE you are trying to install; this should install the JRE as well. I believe under Add/remove programs you will then have an option to remove the SDK separately from the JRE if you need the extra hard drive space back.

    Thanks for the reply Octal. I was able to install successfully (finally) by disconnecting my inet connection, then disabling my anti-virus software and my firewall. The install seemed to go fine at that point. Cheers.
