Or, more probably, that the release is OK and the others above had some local problem.
i dont think it was fixed completelyAt the moment there is no evidence that it was 'fixed' at all. Personally I find it pretty unlikely that a release binary would be changed without changing the release number. Not impossible, but unlikely. I'm sorry I can't help you with whatever local problems you are having, but let's not fantasize about things having happened for which there is zero evidence. That doesn't advance the discussion either.

That is still no reason for the installer to silently fail of course, but I fear that this is the main problem here; the installer not working may actually be for a valid reason, but it is failing to give any kind of hint as to why it is refusing :/
This does not effect every machine/OS, only some. We can install on some OS's, not on others. It appears to be a problem with both the 32 and 64 bit versions of the JDK.

Even if the JavaFX installer fails, it won't affect the installation of the JDK as it at that point is already finished. (If I'm completely misunderstanding the point: sorry).
I had different behaviours on two Windows XP SP3 x86 platforms, as follows:
- On my desktop, JDK 7u2 and 7u3 both fail to install (the installer stops silently after a few seconds). JDK 6 used to be installed (and properly working) on it. JDK 7u1 can be properly reinstalled, which tends to confirm the JavaFX issue mentioned by user 903425 (JavaFX is included in the JDK installation since version 7u2).
