Despite what the installation wizard tells me I'm fairly certain Java isn't installed correctly in my computer

this is my third attempt and the problems seems to be the same.

I've been running the offline installer of java 7 update 17 on a windows 7 computer (32-bit)

 

C:\Program Files\Java\jre7

-there is no /bin folder

-there is no /lib folder

it appears the entirety of the files in core.zip remain unpacked.

manually unpacking these folders from core.zip has not yielded results in the past

-patchjre.exe is 0kb and attempts to run it display the message

-- "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7.exe is not a valid Win32 application."

 

Control panel

-there is no java icon

I suspect this has to do with the fact that the aforementioned /bin folder where the javacpl file is should be is missing.

 

Other

-Java programs fail to run

-fails the test on http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?detect=jre

--"Java™ is required to display this content."

Use the program in link below to remove Java. Then check in your programs list....Add/ Remove...

to be sure all old Java is removed. Then try reinstalling. Do you really need Java? Security experts

recommend not installing Java or keep Java plugins disabled in your browser(s) and only enable when

needed.

In the link in my first post is this:

Still having issues?

Despite our best efforts, sometimes JavaRa proves ineffective at removing broken JRE installations. We recommend trying Revo Uninstaller (or a similar product).

 

Wouldn't hurt to clean up temp files, etc. before using Revo. Use Ccleaner for that. Default settings should do it.

Be sure to watch and uncheck the offer to install Yahoo Toolbar or other during install.
