Installing Java 8.101 on Win7 32bit. RRS feed

  • Question

  • So, having a bit of an issue with this one.. Trying to install Java 8.101 on a machine running Win7 32bit. It had a previous version of Java installed - 7.something, I believe. I've uninstalled it, and tried to install the updated version to no avail. 

    I've run CCleaner and RegSupreme to clean up the registry, and I uninstalled a windows update from September of 2014 that I read, somewhere, had caused issues with the Windows Installer.. It didn't help.

    I've used JavaRa to verify that there isn't any lingering Java files around, and also let it try to install - Also to no avail.

    The issue it's having, is that one of three things happens. 

    Either 

    1. I run the installer, absolutely nothing happens except the spinning-thinking-circle, for a minute. 

    2. Box pops up verifying I want to run the .exe, I hit yes, and part 1 happens.

    3. Box pops up verifying I want to run the .exe, I hit yes, and after a minute another box pops up saying it failed to install correctly and asks if I want to use recommended settings. Regardless of if I hit yes or no on there, nothing happens. 

    I'm logged in as administrator, and I have right-clicked and ran the install file as administrator as well. 

    I'm stumped on this one, guys. Can I get some tips?
