    Problems installing Java 7u2 on Windows XP

    913694
      I have seen lots of posts on this issue but no real solution.

      I was able to installed jdk-7u1-windows-i586.exe just fine but jdk-7u2-windows-i586.exe does nothing. I have run it from the command line, and by double clicking the icon but nothing, no windows, errors or anything. Nothing in the the event logs......


      Does Oracle have a solution for this problem??

          What sort of thing do you expect? Executing jdk-7u2-windows-i586.exe installs the Java runtime (JRE) and the Java compiler. After this the file jdk-7u2-windows-i586.exe can be removed. This will allow you compile and execute Java programs.

          I think the problem is your expectation.
