Can' install Java

By kash1000 ·
I can't install Java software. It gives Error # 1722 mesaage and stops the installation.

I have tried microft and Javs sites and tried to fix as per their suggestions but no luck.

Any help will be appreciated.

I would try

uninstalling any previously installed version, including deleting the directory where it was installed (this might require rebooting first), and clearing the TEMP directory out (usually C:\Windows\Temp) before trying to install again.

Thanks TonytheTiger
It displays the following message.
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 update 10 install info...
Erro 1722. There is problem with windows install package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.
When I close this error box, the following mesge is displayed.
The installation package failed with -203

Do you think Reinstalling Window XP Pro might fix the problem. I could start from scratch but it is too much work to install all programs again.

would probably fix it, but that's a little drastic.

Was this installed before.... and you were trying to install an upgrade? Perhaps you could install an older version, then uninstall and reinstall the newer version.

Is your browser closed while you are doing the install (shouldn't matter, but you never know)?

Have you tried "System Restore" to a point before you had problems?

Yes Tony, I tied it before as you suggested but no luck.

I think I will backup the data and reinstall with repair option and see if it works.
