    Java won't install on Windows 10

    3067688

      Tried to update Java when notified (to version 8 update 65), and after running the updater as administrator, it just stops running with no error messages or anything. I then uninstalled java altogether from the control panel, then tried reinstalling from http://www.java.com/en/download.manual.jsp#win, trying both the online updater and the windows offline (and I tried both 32 and 64-bit versions.)  No luck.

       

      I then tried a program called JavaRa-2.6 which supposedly removed 25 registry entries for a complete uninstall, but Jave still won't install.

       

      I tried rolling back the system to 3 different restore points, no luck. I had it do a repair of all system files (none were bad), and that still didn't fix the problem.

       

      Does Oracle have any ideas on how to fix this?  (Besides rolling back to Windows 7!)

       

      thanks for any ideas..

              I just spent 90 minutes on the phone with Microsoft to sort this problem out, and they finally decided that the latest versions (past v51) of Java doen't play well with the WMI installer if the Windows 10 machine was upgraded from Win7.. They were able to get version 51 (old) installed, but nothing more recent, and they basically said that I was out of luck until Java fixes the problem, or until I buy Windows10 and do a clean windows install.

               

              I did file a bug report 2 months ago, but Oracle never responded.

               

              I am giving up on Java and Javascript, using a Win7 VM to take care of the occasional need to use Java. Maybe Google got it right ditching Java.

                Can you please share the bug ID? Further, there is a new Java update (version 8u71) available that you can try to install.

                If possible, try to uninstall any existing version from the system prior to installation of latest JRE version 8u71.

                  I just have the same problem, but on Windows 7 itself! I already worked on this problem last summer with 8u60, but didn't finish it at that time. Now, again, JRE had to be used, so I tried to install it with latest 8u65/66 last week. Still no success. After that, I found this thread but no useful information at that time. So I installed the last working version 8u51 I had luckily lying around on my hard drive and then copied the files of 8u65 zip download over them and got it to work. Today I tried the latest 8u71, still no luck. I have the same/similar error as mentioned by @3067688 in November 2015.

                  The jusched.log file says:

                    I can't locate the bug report. I have tried what you suggested, and I still have the same result. Microsoft still says it is a Java problem. Unlike the message above, I have the latest working on Win7 machine OK, but the Win10 machine isn't accepting any Java later than 8u51, and some setting somewhere doesn't let it work because it's old.

                            To duplicate, download the offline 32-bit installer and follow the directions in the link you gave. That's it.

                             

                            When you run the command line installation with the directive to save the install log, the installer program exits immediately, no jreMSI.log file, and the only thing that is updated in the %TEMP% directory is the jusched.log, which has the error:

                            ERROR: Exception with message 'KnownProductCodeInstalledJavaTracker.cpp(205) at KnownProductCodeInstalledJavaTracker::next(): MsiEnumProducts(38) failed with error=[1610]' caught

                              Hello,

                               

                              I have the exact same problem and was wondering if there is an ETA on the fix. The most recent version I can install is 1.8.0_51, any version after that, including the latest one (77) fails with similar ERROR in jusched.log (see below). I did install Windows 10 as an upgrade from Windows 8.1.

                               

                              Thanks!

                                Is the "How to" on https://www.java.com/en/download/help/log_files.xml correct?

                                I tried on my windows 7 in the commandline:

                                jre-8u73-windows-x64.exe /LV* %TEMP%\jreMSI.log

                                Is the same result as 3067688 said:

                                The installer program exits immediately, no jreMSI.log and other log files, and the only thing that is updated in the %TEMP% directory is the jusched.log, which still has the error:

                                There are some other parameters for getting more log files or other level of trace?

                                  I had the same problem and while I cannot fix the issue with the installer - I found a workaround to get the latest Java on my Windows 7 (which had the exact problem described).

                                   

                                  Here's the workaround (64 bit instructions / Windows 7 - you can probably figure it out for 32 bit if needed. Instructions for 1.8.0_77 - adapt as needed)

                                  It of course requires that you have admin access.

                                   

                                  0) If you do not have any java already, install 1.8.0_45 from the Java archives (need to register as a user for this).

                                  1) Download the .tar.gz version instead of the .exe version from java.com

                                  2) Unpack it. You can use a free tool like 7zip for this. Place it in the correct folder, e.g. c:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_77

                                  3) Update the symlinks in C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath which should be left from the old version. This is easy with Windows Explorer. Just right-click -> properties -> "Link Properties". Update the "Target"

                                  4) Update the registry (regedit.exe):

                                  a) Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment

                                  b) There you find several keys: 1.8 and 1.8.0_45 (or whatever older versions you have). Right click and export the 1.8.0_45 + subkeys

                                  c) edit the exported file with a text editor. Do a search/replace from "_45" to "_77"

                                  d) Save the file and reimport with regedit. You should now get a new key for _77

                                  e) Go to the 1.8 key. Update JavaHome and RuntimeLib to point to the _77 version.

                                   

                                  That's it. Open a cmd prompt and type:

                                  java -version

                                  to confirm that it is working.

                                    Thanks a million for your helpful tips!!!

                                     

                                    It was a royal PITA, but, after downloading Link Shell Extension to be able to change the symlinks in Windows 10, downloading a better text editor (notepad++), finding all the registry entries with regedit (not in the same place in Win10 - was in a folder called WOW6432), and then having to search all over for the .tar.gz version (it is in Java SE Runtime Environment 8 - Downloads for anyone interested), I was ready to prodeed..

                                     

                                    Followed your instructions as modified by the fact that I was doing this to Win10 with 32-bit java.. I wanted the build version too, which I found by looking at the properties of the new java.exe file, (it was version 91, build 14), and I made edits to the registry to include the build number (to be thorough).. 

                                     

                                    I also found some registry entries that indicated the browser java version, which I updated.

                                     

                                    The only thing I couldn't track down was the version of the auto update program (AUVersion) which I left at 2.6.60.27.

                                     

                                    Anyway, command line version now says -91, the web-based java script for the old webcam works now without all the mess about running with an old version of Java, and the only thing that doesn't work is the java website "check your version" test, which claims I have an old version of java and then the uninstall old versions program refuses to run.

                                     

                                    I don't care at this point - I am SOOOO done with Java and Oracle.

                                     

                                    Why the Oracle people couldn't just put these procedures on line is beyond me. Why Microsoft blames Oracle, tells me it's a known problem, yet Oracle refuses to fix it is also an annoying mystery.

                                     

                                    Anyway, thanks for your help -- got me up and running well enough for the time being!
