    Vista Ultimate, installed from clean HDD.
    Vista activated & genuine

    I want to install Java. Using the manual method, from java.com , after downloading the 15+MB installation file, I am greeted with error 1722
    "there is a problem with this windows installer program"
    Then, java installer informs me that it has finished.

    When I try to access the web site,
    "windows has blocked this software because it can't verify the publisher"

    I tried to update Windows installer, but its requirements do not list Vista.

    I have uninstalled java, re-downloaded & re-installed.

    I turned off IE 7's security.
    I added the web site to IE's trusted zone.

    I tried to install the java plugin for FF, but I am informed "not available", but "manual install" is active.

    Sincerely,
    RF123

    wats up with the "bump".... i see it all the time...

    I installed Java perfectly on my copy of Vista, however i haven't had the time to upgrade from my RC1 to the RTM.

    There isn't a Java release for Vista yet either, that could be it.

    You running 32bit or 64bit?

    Per java.com, error 1722 is under investigation.

    In Vista, using FF 2.0.0.1, thread tools do not include "mark as solved".
