JAVA does NOT post any way to fix this error 1101 for VISTA on the JAVA website. When I try to install the Java 6.0 update 7 on my Hewlett Packard computer with Windows Vista Home Premium and I repeatedly get the same error 1101. Java only posts the fix for error 1101 for other platforms. I am not a "techy" and I have spent many hours trying to find the solution. I UNINSTALLED ALL of the previous JAVA versions in case that was the problem. That did NOT help. I have NO JAVA versions on my computer and I need JAVA!
The error message reads:
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.
Instructions are given for this error code on the Sun Java help pages, but they refer to other versions of Windows -- not Vista. They gave some instructions which I went ahead and followed anyway -- didn't work -- instructions stated if you still can't install to download and reinstall the Windows Installer Package. They gave a link and I went there but again, that installer package was for other versions of Windows.
I emailed JAVA several times through their website but they never replied. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
