I am trying to download jre-6u3 on my parents computer. They are running Windows XP Home and their current java version is 1.5_06-B05. I keep getting the error message " the installation of package http://java.sun.com/update/1.6.0/jre-6u3-windows -i586 jc.xpi failed with -203.

I have tried doing an offline download. Their main browser is Firefox, I have also tried using IE to download with no luck.

Does anybody have any ideas?

Thanks!

Try downloading it here---

http://filehippo.com/download_java_runtime/

Choose latest version.

It works for me.

A possibility is that, if you are running FF with NoScript, you may have to go to the Options button in the bottom right corner of the screen, and ALLOW JAVA (or similar).

Also, remove old versions of Java before installing the new one.

Good luck.

May not do any good but have you cleaned out the accumulated clutter. Start>AllPrograms>Accessories>SystemTools>DiskCleanup.
