Could you give exact specifications on how the error happens? (from start to finish)
After you click the link, what do you do? What does your computer do? etc...
Can you download other things? Pictures? Videos? If it's a network related issue, then most things won't download. Are you using Wi-Fi, Ethernet cable? DSL, cable modem, satellite internet? Or (Heaven forbid) dial-up??!!
Can you connect to the internet from a different place? (a friend or neighbor's house) Will downloads work then?
I'm just trying to get you to try things to troubleshoot your problems.
What browser are you using? (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari) If you're using Internet Explorer, try Firefox
(assuming you can download it). What operating system do you have? (hit "Windows Logo Key + R" on the keyboard, type "winver" without the quotes, and hit Enter)
Also (when you get connected to a good internet connection), make sure all your stuff is updated (Windows patches, anti-virus updates, drivers, software like adobe and java, etc...). It will save you some trouble later.
I'm still wondering why that offline installer won't work. They call it an offline installer because after you download it (while you're online), you can take the file and install it while you're offline (or on other computer that don't have internet access).
Okay, I'll give you explicit directions on how to install the offline version of java:Connect to the internet.
Click this link.
Depending on your browser, it will ask to "Save", "Run", etc....chose Save. Save on the Desktop for easy finding later. (just go up in the directories until you can't go any further)
After the file downloads, go to the desktop and double click it.
If you get a prompt asking if you want to run this file, choose Yes.
You should soon see the installation window.
Click Next, Next, I Agree, etc...until it tells you that it is installing (stuff will be happening and the only button will be the cancel button. DON'T hit the cancel button!)
Depending on your PC's speed, in a couple of minutes, it should be done.
If something went wrong following those directions, state specifically what it was (don't just say you got an error). Tell specifically what you clicked, and what happened after (window popped up, flashing lights, dancing girls, what?).
I hope that helps. We will get to the bottom of this!!
If it's a physical network problem, then we can't help you. Call your ISP (internet service provider) and complain to them. It is their job to fix it. If you call a third party repair service, they will charge you.
When the error says "Appdata", that is a folder on your computer. When it says "network location appdata", it sounds like it is trying to locate a folder called appdata that is not on your computer (which it shouldn't be doing).
Let me know what happened when you followed the directions in bold
