Failed to install JRE1.8.x on Windows 2016 Core

bedrock Member Posts: 1

I run into problems when trying to install jre1.8.0_144 & jre1.8.0_161.  The installed failed with error code: 1603.

Since Win 2016 core has not GUI, I used installation config file with following options:


INSTALLDIR=C:\Program Files\java\jre1.8.0_144


My test server was fresh build with no previous Java installation.  I searched the install log file (for 1.8.0_144) and saw first error as following:

MSI (s) (B4:EC) [13:47:52:849]: Note: 1: 1722 2: installexe 3: C:\Program Files\java\jre1.8.0_144\installer.exe 4: /s INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\java\jre1.8.0_144\\" STATIC=1 INSTALLCFG="c:\temp\jre_test\jre-install.cfg" INSTALL_SILENT=1 REPAIRMODE=0 ProductCode={26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F64180144F0}

  CustomAction installexe returned actual error code 61014 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)

I have searched online for info related to 1603 and 61014 AND could not find solution.

Any help with fixing the problem or suggestions for troubleshooting will be greatly appreciated.
