Have you tried uninstalling and then re-downloading it?

Yes I did but no help. I changed the location from my documents to the desk but when I try to open nothing happens. Incredible with the other pc the installation was normal but with this one there is a problem.

mloo55,

This version of Sun Java works fine on my Win98SE machine:

J2SE 1.4.2_16 [14.95 MB]

Java 2 Runtime Environment, Second Edition

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/jre/install-windows.html

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html

The latest release for Windows 98 is Java RTE 5 update 15.
Here's a few things to try - download the Windows install Cleanup utility.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301
Read the instructions - when you extract the files,
msizapa.exe has to renamed to msizap.exe. Execute msicuu.exe to start the tool.
If you see java runtime in the list, hilight it and select "remove"
Clear the contents of \windows\temp

See if Java will install now.

mloo55,

The page for the current JRE release for Win98 can be found here:

Although I installed JDK 6u1 along with JRE 6u1, when I try to install Java Studio Enterprise 8.1 the first thing installer is reporting is the it can not find JRE and JDK... After manually selecting appropriate files and folders through Browse option, installer continues normally.

When just about to end installation, installer crushes reporting OutOfMemory exception in several modules, mentioning Java heap memory... I have 1 GB RAM, so this shouldn't be a problem.

I tried same procedure on several machines with different amount of RAM, but situation is similar. Two months ago when I first time installed JSE8.1 I had older JDK/JRE and all went OK.

Any Ideas what could cause this problem except compatibilities issues with JDK/JRE 6u1?
