The error 1603 is associated with Windows installer. See:
As another possible workaround, 1. Ensure that Control Panel -> Add Remove Programs does not have JDK listing. If it does, remove the same and then reattempt the JDK installation.
At the same time, can you confirm if you have a recent Windows update on your system prior to JDK 8u20 install attempt?
Let me know if any of the above helped.
I deinstalling all JDK in my system. But this error exist.
I install this package behind Administrator. This account have all permissions.
Whether this problem can be connected to the Core Windows Server version?
I've got exactly the same problem. Maybe this is when the system-drive is encrypted with bitlocker? I uninstalled all java-versions (JDK and JRE both 32 and 64 bit) and tried to install only jre-8u20-windows-i586.exe. However i always get the messages you described. For now I'll go back to 8u11 which worked without a problem
Did you try disabling bitlocker and try installing 8u20 again. Also, ensure that you restart the system after removing older versions. Let us know if this helped.
This is not possible, we have full disc encryption and it would mean a complete Windows reinstall.
I had the same issue, but this thread was helpful to solve it Re: Error installing Java JRE > 1.7.51 .
There is a temporary solution:
1. Install English Lang Pack
2. Apply English for Display language and Copy settings to Welcome screen and system accounts
3. Return the old language, and copy settings to New user accounts
4. jre7u55, jre7u60, jre8, jre8u5 install successfully.
I solve problema. I write the solution for help others players.
1.- Install java with installation. when you see the error, close it.
2.- java files are copy correctly but, the complement doesn't register. So, you must to going to installation folder (C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin or C:\Program Files x86\Java\jre7\bin) and run javacpl.exe
3.- Go to security tab. and uncheck active content of java in explorer (I translate for my spanish java ), clik in apply. after that you must to check the same tic again and clik in apply button. accept an close the window
4.- And finally, you must to go to admin complements in explorer, and enable java complement.
