Error installing Java Development Kit on Server 2008 Core R2

jhallr14 used Ask the Experts™
When installing Java Development Kit 6 Update 17 (64 bit) on a Windows Server 2008 Core (64 bit either Standard or Enterprise), I am receiving an error Installer : Wrapper.CreateFile failed with error 3: The system cannot find the path specified.  I am logged on as Administrator and have tried this as a local administrator as well as a domain administrator.  I have successfully installed this version of Java on Windows 2008 servers that are running with the GUI interface and not in Core mode.  Any suggestions?

What if you try to only unzip de jdk to the specified directory and setting JAVA_HOME. Would that solve your problem?


That was a good idea.  Tried it, but still am getting the error.  Even tried looking at a 2008 Server with GUI and set directories, paths and variables to be same with same result.  Any other ideas?
That's to bad! I realy hoped that this could be a workaround for your problem. I noticed that you were installing a 64 bits version of java. What if you try the java binarys 32 bits version. Unzip them in a directory an let JAVA_HOME point to it.

If thats not working, did you try an older or newer version of java?
