    Hello,

    I posted previously, and i think one person said that they had Java working.
    I have tried and tried, but won't install on build 1433.
    Everything else seems to run/install fine so far, including my creative usb
    sound box, PCI Express Nvidia, SATA onboard, etc.

    Everytime i run the J2SE installer, jre-1_5_0_02-windows-i586-p-iftw.exe
    either from firefox 104, or from download, it has a installer error:

    Windows installer -> Preparing to install -> i accept the terms ->
    Typical -> Next -> ERROR

    Windows installer has encountered a problem and needs to close.
    Please tell microsoft about this problem. [Send] [Don't Send]
    Error Report contents: msiexec.exe 3.1.4000.1433

    Did some googling and read that Java is not x64 compatible at this time, so
    i'm wondering why someone said it worked, or was working for them. a earlier
    version?

    Tried Windows Install cleanup utility also.

    any suggestions?

    thanks.

    andre,

    thanks for that link. did not see amd version before.
    but still the same. i get a 'send error to microsoft' right after i click
    'next' at the 'typical install' screen.

    i guess something wrong with my msiexec file?

  5. The plugin doesn't work for Windows XP Pro x64. Here is a quote from
    Sun's site: "Installation Instructions
    This procedure installs the JDK, but not the Java Plug-in, Java Web
    Start or public Java 2 Runtime Environment (which are not yet available
    for 64-bit Windows). "


    Hope this clears things up.
