Java Update error Java 6_22

I have two Windows Vista workstations that will not allow java to be updated.  Error 1311. Source file not found: c:/Users\UserName\AppData\LocalLow\Sun|Kava\jre1.6.0_22\  Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.

I have access to the user folder installing the file and it has rights on the box to perform the install.  I have removed the folder and allowed java to re-created; attempted changing file locations, attempted using 3 different accounts but all 3 return the same error message.  However, 1.5.22 can be installed and 1.6.22 can not.  Any suggestions

The only resolution found was to install the jdk vs the jre.  

Thanks to all who assisted in attempted to find solutions to this issue!

Have you checked to see that your JAVA_HOME enviornment variable is set?
You can go to My Computer/Properties/Advanced/Enviornment Variables/System variables.
Click New button if not already listed or select JAVA_HOME then Edit button.
Enter the path of where you installed Java or edit the path to the new location.
Also don't forget to add ";%JAVA_HOME%\bin" to your Path variable.
I hope that this helps.

I am still receiving the same Java Setup error 1330.  A file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file C:\users\username\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\ has an invalid digital signature.  This may indicate that the cabinet file is corrupt.  

I have attempted several profiles and changing the location for the install but all return with the same above results.

Download a fresh copy and install it.  See if it gives you the same error.

  Unfortunately somewhat the same error exist.  jre1.6.0_22-c-l.msi is corrupt or if I download the file and run it the previous error exist.  Could this be a certificate error?

There seems to be some corruption somewhere.  I would suggest you to remove your previous version of Java.  Go to Start/Settings/Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs/Java ...
Click remove button.

Once Java is removed then install the jre.  See if that works.

This was the only solution I could find even to date in overcoming the jre install issue outside re-imaging the box.
