Java - Installation problems (jre.msi missing..etc)

Postby Sethioz » Sat Jan 04, 2014 10:53 pm

I've had problems with java on win 7 for ages, it keeps messing itself up. so today i decided to re-install it, but apparantly java 7 does not replace java 6, so you need both of them.
anyway, when i downloaded java6 and tried installing, it said something that file is missing and installer can't continue bla bla and gave me option to browser for jre.msi
Well that's just one dumb issue that comes from poor programming and development. i tried cleaning registry ..etc, but tool that fixes it, is called "Windows install clean up"
run that, find java and remove it. after that you should be good to go.

I just posted this somewhat basic "tutorial" here, because when i got this issue i googled and found lot of people with same issue and no solution.
If you need windows install clean up tool, reply here. can't bother looking for it now.
