First post here so I hope you can get me off to a good start! ;-)
I'm trying to get Java RE installed on my new Vista (Home Premium) PC. My browser is Firefox BTW.
I've tried offline installations, online and various versions of Java but it always fails towards the end of the installation process.
I get the usual 1722 error message:
"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."
However, perhaps more interestingly, I also get the following message prior to the 1722 message:
"Failure setting file's Time/Date stamp"
To try and overcome the installation problems, I've:
tried various versions of the Java RE file
run the .msi file from within my user profile
turned off Vista's User Account Control feature
tried installing to a custom directory
I've run out of ideas so would really appreciate some help.
Thanks in advance.
