  1. Which meant, I probably could of extracted the reg entry in the Laptop myself. I did have to re-name the 2 folders JRE was placed in slightly. I'm still leaning to the fact the Laptop already had a JRE folder (another version) which in itself 'helped' the 'update 8' version to find it's way.
  2. Never thought about Safe Mode, I haven't had to use that for probably a decade or so. No security software, virus or otherwise running there, since it's rarely used. The reason was it would be far more convenient to use that then the larger Laptop. (Now, this is why the post in more than 1 forum ) BTW; did you compile that reg file yourself or copy that from your test install registry?
  3. Yes , it did, at least the program 'sees' Java. Ok, question; What (in the o/s) would of stopped JRE from installing properly, specifically, unpacking the entire package which apparently included the missing registry file entry? I went to the laptop that didn't have the problem and found 2 other Java versions listed in the Registry, if that may of been a reason it worked there. There were no Java entries in the Notebook.
  4. That's what I've been saying, either that and/or some dll's or similar that need to be spread around the O'S (as usual) so they can work with the java, the program and M$'s C++ 2008 the other bloated wonder this poorly written Televes program needs to work. I'm a firm believer for more than than just a '2nd opinion'. Ill see if any of this works.
  5. There is only one copy in the active partition and it's in the ASuite program folder.
  6. I extracted the Java 7 file twice, placed it in "Program Folders", then re-installed 'ASuite', moved the 'renamed 'JRE' folder inside that program folder. All I get now is ASuite needs JRE 1.7.0 as opposed to the error message that JRE couldn't be found or something about registry corruption (I don't recall the exact wording).
  7. Neither of those worked. Let me ask this, what in the O/S would cause a non M$ program not to install properly as in not fully extracting? That basically seems to be the problem.
  8. I try not to do that. Sorry about that, I don't know why/how that happened, I didn't realize I had a thread here. My bad.
  9. I updated my OP to reflect the current situation arrived by additional testing.
  10. FWIW, none of those versions I tried worked. They 'install' but the installation is corrupt with a single .exe file & a "core.zip" folder that doesn't get extracted. Even after I manually extract it, the program still complaints about a corrupted install. I tried 4 or 5 different versions, they basically all do the same thing. If you want all the (unnecessary) details of the situation (that shouldn't of mattered in the 1st place); That was a Wintell 'Atom" Gateway Notebook. I'll try my AMD HP 'Laptop' and see if that is any different (still XP Pro) that I've had form
  11. What's flash have to do with JRE? This program is specific of what it needs. Yes, 45 pages is "long". Too long.
  12. I have a specific application that controls an external device (not PC related) that needs Java RE v1.7 to work. Apparently between Oracle & M$, compatibility/support seems to be a issue with XP probably making matters worse. Oracle calls this v1.7, "7" adding to the confusion. Initially, in my older Wintel Gateway Notebook this did not install properly. I did some further testing. I tried installing this in my somewhat newer AMD based HP ProBook and it installed/extracted properly. What I did this time was to install JRE first, then the devices program. Then I went back t
  13. I did a fast search, edited my post.
