Need help with java

#1TOhasNoRingPosted 2/20/2014 5:48:09 PM
Ok so I need some help installing java because im not sure whats going on.
So when I to download java, I get the installer but then right before java installs, a pop up comes up sayig "the feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click ok to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'jre1.7.0_25-c.msi' in the box below"

I have no idea what to do.. btw it says its java 7 update 51 if that means anything.
Also I am using windows 8...

That's what usually happens when it's trying to install to a drive that doesn't exist (like a removable hard drive or networked drive or something).

Actually from a quick google search, the answer is apparently to remove all traces of the old java before installing...

It was suggested you use a tool like this:
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Secure-cleaning/Windows-Installer-CleanUp-Utility.shtml

Hmm, I just tried to see if I could get the same error and it installed for me on the first try.

I downloaded java 7 update 51 from
http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=83383

(in case that makes a difference)

The softpedia thing? Try the 2nd link first and see if that works for you. If it still gives you that same error after you try to install java, then you'd just need to click download (on softpedia) and then choose a mirror (US/UK or whatever)

What? which link did you try to download? The Softpedia link or the one for sun.com?

Try the sun.com link and then install that... if that doesn't work for you then I'm fresh out of ideas. It worked for me on the first try and I would have to work through it myself to figure out exactly what the problem is.
