Java Install Issues

By | 02/04/2015

I often have Java update issues on client PCs. Every time I’ve not been able to simply remove, reinstall, or download and run the offline installer, I have used JavaRA.

Be sure to download the 2.6 version as it states “this is probably the one you want”. Uninstall Java using it, clean up, install. Quite simple.

One example of an error in event viewer while trying to upgrade.

Product: Java 8 Update 40 — Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action installexe, location: C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_40\installer.exe, command: /s INSTALLDIR=”C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_40\\” REPAIRMODE=0

I’ve seen 1601, 1602, 1603, 1604 in the Java Update window at times.
