I just wanted to reply to say i am having the exact same problem. I've tried on both my desktop and my laptop and got the same results. I'm hoping for an answer as well.
I just posted a similar situation with error 1723, but the end result is the same!!
I am also having exactly the same problem:
First I wanted to install SQL Developer (sqldeveloper64-18.104.22.168.45-no-jre), but it is asking for the complete path for java.exe.
I entered the java.exe path from ORACLE_HOME/bin. The it is asking for jdk higher version than 1.5.
Now I downloaded jdk-6u21-windows-x64 and tried but the same error 1722 is thrown.
I tried with jdk-6u23-windows-x64 and followed the instruction from oracle that I need to install jre (jre-6u23-windows-i586-s) first and then the jdk. But still the problem persists.
OS - Windows 7 64 bit Professional (upgraded from home version using Windows Anytime Upgrade)
Oracle 11g for win 7 64.
It would be very much appreciated if any help is extended.
Thanks in advance

I have the same problem. Clean, brand new PC. Did same as OP - de-installed JRE (23) and JDK SE6 23(x63) remnants, etc and started from scratch. JDK installer just throws Error 1722 and backs out. I'm out of business until I can get this working.

I was getting the 1722 trying to install jdk-6u29-windows-i586.exe on XP. I noticed an eeror related to zipper & dmeo.zip, so I installed again and captured zipper.exe & demo.zip. I then unzipped demo.zip using zipper (it generates a log). Looking at log, zipper was choking on the book.jpg file. So, I created a demo.zip without these, replaced it while install was running and it installed successfully. Seems crazy but it worked.
I'm having the same problem. I've spent probably 10 hours trying to get around this. My summer project was learning java so this is really irritating. I'm reaching the end of my rope on this project...
