Hi,
I am trying to upgrade my Safari for Windows (Vista Home Premium) to the latest version 5.

I am getting an install error right after I verify the folder destination:
"The folder path 'JRE 1.6"' contains an invalid character"

I tried uninstalling my older Safari version (3.2.3) first - but I still get the same error.

any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
hefterr

Looks to me like you need to re-install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
Try this and then reinstall your Safari...

Yes - can you uninstall Java first?

Well, I'm not sure of the exact sequence of events you all are requesting.  But I did install a recent verison of Java as jsdray had suggested.

When I run : http://javatester.org/version.html

I get that I am running "Java Version 1.7.0_10 from Oracle Corporation".  But for some reason the Safari for Windows Install gets hung up on ""The folder path 'JRE 1.6"' contains an invalid character"?  Can you have 2 versions installed?

I am very confused!

 This is why i asked you if you could uninstall 1.6 first.

Could you explain how to do this?  I am not a Java person.

Thanks,

Uninstalling Java should  be no different from any other program

IT WORKED!!!!  I had 3 versions of JRE:
version.6 upd 35
version 6 upd 37
version 7 upd 10

I uninstalled the 2 version 6 occurrences and the Safari for Windows installed without a hitch.

Thanks again and have a happy holiday!
