Windows Installer/Java error 1723 NEED URGENT HELP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there, the other day i decided i wanted to play minecraft but it wouldnt let me, it told me i needed the latest java, well i have java and so i go to reinstall it. When i did it told me "Error 1723" and it wouldnt do it, so i thought to delete it, i goto programs and features to remove anything "java" related but the same thing "error 1723" i search the internet for help and all i find is "remove or reinstall it" which i can do neither of! So i try to tackle it at windows installer, i follow a tutorial that says to delete the msiserver subkey (in run > regedit) and so i do, then it said to re install it at microsoft.com, i do and there are multiple downloads, i tried all of them and i kept getting "Update not for your system" "Nope" this is reeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaally annoying and all i wanna do is play minecraft!!! someone PLEASE help me!
