Hello. I'm trying to install Java 7 & I keep getting this error:
installer : wrapper.createfile failed with error 5: access is denied

I have uninstalled all previous versions of Java, tried installing as administrator...

Nothing is working.

I had that problem -- I discovered that the permissions had gotten munged on the AppData/LocalLow/Sun folder ("Administrators" need to have full control so the install program can read/write; instead, there was no listing at all for "Administrators"). When I gave "Administrators" full-control privileges over the directory, the install worked.

Thank you so much for this. I could not figure out what could possibly be wrong, and this fixed it! After trying to install it from different sources and using Microsoft FixIt, I thought i was out of luck. But this worked! Thanks again!

I had the same problem. Here's what I did:

1. I downloaded the current Java version installer
2. Used the uninstall Java app at http://java.com/en/download/uninstallapplet.jsp
3. Went into Control Panel/Uninstall a Program and made sure Java was uninstalled
4. Closed out of all programs (including browser)
5. Deleted the folder cited above
6. Installed Java as Administrator

Worked like a charm and I finally have Java installed.
