Java 1.6.22 fails on install

Recommended Posts

I have got a Windows 98se pc with KernelEx installed. I tried to install Java 1.6.22 since the wiki said that is the lastest version that runs without any major problems. Actually the installer fails on copying new files with message: Error 1330.A file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Sun\Java\jre1.6.0_22\Data1.cab has an invalid digital signature. This may indicate that the cabinet file is corrupt. Task scheduler also changes icon. I have tried silent mode and changing compatibility. They failed. What can I do to install it without this error?

You should go back to the page and carefully read.  The last version is  1.6.0.31. 1.6.22 is too high of a version.  You should also change your clock.  Or roll your clock back to a reasonable date taht would be aplicable to the signature date.   You need to select 2000 sp4 as the compatibility mode on the EXE file then you have to run it silently.(its both)   Unless you already tried that.  make sure you are using a full install package not the web version.

Ok the instructions I gave just work and it has worked for 100s of people without failure so if it doesn't work for you than there is some other problem unrelated to this.

Silent install: Start-->RUN

C:\jre-6uxx-windows-i586.exe /s

Destro, The last Java 6 version is update 45: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-downloads-javase6-419409.html. I have it installed on my machine, it runs fine. Update 22 is not too high of a version, it's older than update 31.

And if you don't mind me asking, how do you know the number of people who installed it successfully on 9x?

 

Btw, in case anyone is interested I have JRE & JDK 7 Update 76, JRE & JDK 8 Update 92 and JDK 9 Beta 95 all installed on my machine. 7 appears fully functional, 8 and 9 have some stuff that doesn't work but still usefull as I can run some programs requiring either of those versions specifically.

100s sounded very reasonable to me, its probably an underestimate to be honest.  I don't really know for certain but I know 100 sounds really low to me.  But thats the point.

PS I know you can instal higher version with kex betas but the point is the wiki says that its 1.6.0.31 not the other one that OP said it said.  But I'm not gonna suggest to install higher version with  kex to somone who can't get what pretty much just works tested by everyone who has tried.

The OP is trying to install update 22 (the last version that should normally install without extra hodge podge) and you are telling him it's more recent than update 31!!!!

Java installer errors occur very often. Usually they have nothing to do with 98/ME or KernelEx! A search for error 1330 in the web could help. There are some answers.

I'm not sure anymore, if in this case an older Version of the Windows Installer causes errors. Latest version for 98/ME is 2.0.2600.2.

I found Javafixer.org in the WayBackMachine: Java Fixer
