Java Runtime update

  johnpalmer 11:12 03 Apr 2014

I have downloaded Java Runtime Environment 8 update, but when I try to install it I get an error message saying "The procedure entry point RegDeleteKeyExW could not be located in the dynamic link library ADVAPI32.dll". Does anyone know what the heck this means, and can it be resolved. I am running Windows XP Home. Thanks for any help in advance.

Before you worry too much about this problem have you actually tried removing JRE completely and see if you actually need it?

Very few people find they need it at all and I haven't had it installed on either of my computers for about two years with no problems whatsoever.
