I have successfully downloaded a new version of Java but the installation will not complete.

Posted

I get the red circle with the white X near the end of the installation.

Chosen solution

If you want to download on a newer computer, download the following (You have ALOT of out of data software)

Download these programs and transfer them onto a USB drive, take it to your computer, and install them

Firefox http://getfirefox.com/

Java: http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=73857

Flash http://labsdownload.adobe.com/pub/labs/flashplatformruntimes/flashplayer11-5/flashplayer11-5_install_win_pi.exe

After doing this, run the installer I gave you above again, these programs are the biggest ones and it will skip them since they will now be up to date.

Please restart your PC, then use http://ninite.com/firefox-flash-java-reader/ninite.exe to update your software.

Question owner

The preparation process took over two hours. I have dial-up so I aborted

   the download of Java 7,  when it looked like it would take too long.

   Is this process interruptable ?  Can Java7 and the Reader be downloaded
   on a faster computer, then transferred ?
