Unable to download JRE update 3

  monkeyboy21 14:43 29 Oct 2007

Hi All,

I'm trying to update my Java Runtime to update 3 unsuccesfully.

It attempts to install and then comes up with 'this installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package'.

From what i remember i think i had problems trying to update JRE last time! Any ideas appreciated - can't se anything matching in our the forums! Thanks in advance!

'Error applying transforms! Verify that the specified transforms path are valid'

Are you using Firefox? If so, try it with IE. This happened to me the last two updates.

I'm running IE, with Zonealarm, XP with SP2, all appearing to run correctly. It appears that xp doesn't want to unpack the files to install them.
ZA is allowing JRE to access and download from the internet.
I'm a little stuck at the moment on where to go!

6.0.03 is the current version, as brundle states.

I download and install each new/updated version of Java using Firefox.

I've tried using firefox, again to no avail - it must be something to do with my pc, as the error message is the same as for my first post!
