lib\security\java.security: Old File not found.

We would like to move our application to JRE version1.6.0_17. This is a Java webstart application (jnlp). While testing, the automatic update (to _17) I get this error involving java.security file.

Our application requires a third party security provider and so our current installed customer base has a new security provider installed (thus they have a modified java.security file installed).

After the listed errors the JRE installation seems to be invalid and unusable.

Is there a work around for this issue which will allow our currently installed
users to easily install Java update 17?

First error message:
lib\security\java.security: Old File not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match.

next message:
Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.

then:
Installation Failed
The wizard was interrupted before Java(TM) 6 Update 17 could be completely installed. To complete installation at another time, please run setup again.
Click "OK" to exit the wizard.
