Bit the .MST looks incorrect. That should have been .MSI
The method I used last time was to uninstall Java and then go get it.
when i try to install java 6up7 I get this msg
error 1101: Error reading from file:
http://javadl-esd.sun.com/update/1.6.0/sp-1.6.0_07/ sp1033.mst. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it. I have been all over the internet, and tried everything I could understand to do. First of all I dont have a file sp1033.mst. If I found one I dont know how to make accessible. The only thing I havent done is uninstalled all earlier javas, because I dont want to be without a java on my computer. I have java 6up4, i can install version 6up5 no problem, anything higher I get that error. According to java this is an ongoing problem. I tried their unregister and re-registering of msie.exe, that didnt work. I even went into cmd mode and tried re-registering a bunch of wu dll's. that didnt work either. Could please help me. I am runniing Windows XP sp 3-32 bit. I have been told to update my windows installer to 4.1 or? 5, but that is only for 64 bit. I did download and install ther version for 32 bit. Didnt work. could somebody please help me. If someone has a 32bit machine and got the java update to work please let me know how.
What do u mean .MST looks incorrect. The error says exactly this: error 1101: Error reading from file:
http://javadl-esd.sun.com/update/1.6.0/sp-1.6.0_07/ sp1033.mst. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it. Do u mean install all version updates and then try installing it.
Yes I did install the latest version of windows installer. Just to today for some reason I was able to install 6v6. Were as before I was getting that error with it also. After installing 6v6 I tried to install 6v7, again that error. I dont know what was different. How could 6v6 have finally found sp1033.mst and suddenly 6v7 cant, is beyond me. I thoroughly dislike the idea fo having to uninstall all previous versions of Java, especially since I just got 6v6 to install. Why would previous versions keep an update for working?
Well I got 6v7 installed successfully. All I did was download it to my computer. Then when I clicked install, it wanted to connect to the internet, I closed the connection. I let it install w/out connecting, and it installed with no problems or errors. I still dont know what this sp1033.mst file is because I still dont have it on or in my system. But thank you for all your input and help. But something worked.
I just had to say thanks to klk21 for coming back and making that last post. I've been trying for a MONTH to get java installed. Read dozens of posts all over the net, mostly the same, I've tried it all, over and over and over. I found this post because she typed in the error exactly as it appearred (with the MST - not MSI). Installing java WITHOUT BEING CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET.... one thing I hadn't tried!!! And it went so smooth I thought something was wrong. She probably won't be back to read this, but I want others to know how helpful it is to come back when you DO find a solution!
.....you can easily keep it Up to date by downloadng JavaRa.exe
verify your Java from time to time http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
I agree uninstall all old versions from Add and Remove as when you update they are not automatically uninstalled like some other programs.
