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 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.
