What does happen?

Which exact version of JDK 8 are you installing (revision#, 32-bit or 64-bit, etc.)?

It is  Jdk8u40 for windows 64 bit, it stops during start up and hangs there.

Hi!

Do you run it as administrator (right click - > Run as administrator) ?
If not then it most likely is a security violation that you are bumping into.

Hi Tomas,

Thanks for the information, I was running as administrator to install JDK and it was not installing. I manged to solve this problem by removing older installations of Java.

Thanks
