Can't Install Java JRE 6 Update 13 (using IE 8)
I am using IE 8 on an XP Pro machine. When I try to d/l JRE 6 Update 13 I never see the Information Bar that may read:
'This site might require the following ActiveX control: Java SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 13 from Sun Microsystems, Inc.. Click here to install.'
I can download it but the installation hangs with this Java Setup window:
Error 1721. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.
Is IE 8 not seeing the ActiveX control?
Edit: I have also tried the offline installation but still get the same "Error 1721" message.
