Yes, it was NOT about JAVA. But it is a similar error and the tools noted as well as JAVARA (see google) are the usual cure.
I have tried over and over to install Java version 7 update 17 and I continually get a message that says the file 'jre1.7.0_09.msi' cannot be located and that I should install Java version 7 update 11. I cannot find that update. I installed JRA and removed all the old Java files and tried again, but got the same message. Any ideas?
I will check into the details of your answer a little later. Here's what I tried already. I re-installed Java from the archive on java.com. I started with Java SE7 and re-installed every update one by one. All were installed successfully through JavaSE7u10. However, when I tried to re-install JavaSE7u11, I began to get the error message about missing 'jre.1.7.0_09.msi'. That message continued all the way up to JavaSE7u17. I was able to install JavaSE up through update 10, so perhaps the issue is not JavaSE. Is there another issue at work here that I am not seeing?
I'm not sure if that will work for everyone but if you don't need an app or addon, remove it. The less apps, the smaller the chance of an exploit.
What I am seeing is that consumers are feeling a little worn out over the constant updates and then issues like you lead with where the update fails.
