I recently got a windows 10 pc and i went to go install Java, the jre and jdk so I can start developing stuff again and when i run the installer it does absolutely nothing. When i right click to run as administrator it prompts to say yes which i do and then after that nothing happens. I go to my folders where it would usually install and nothing is there. i've been trying to find a fix for days now and it seems im the only one having this problem.

I get no error messages or anything. I have never had problems installing anything on this pc before. I even tried using Ninite to install java silently and it didnt work. i tried the offline installation, the 32 bit the 64 bit, nothing on oracle helped me.

I have installed netbeans and it worked perfectly fine but i wanted to use eclipse but upon installing eclipse it said i dont have jre nor jdk which i thought was weird so i uninstalled netbeans and the netbeans installation wont even work anymore.

I would re-submit your question to them and be sure to include any log files.

Which exact setup file are you downloading? Tell me the exact filename and give me a link. I'll download it and try to install it on my test system (Windows 10 version 1703 build 15063.413). If it works on my test system, then the problem is likely something wrong with your Windows and not the Java setup.

So what could be wrong with your Windows? I honestly don't know but there are things you can do to try to figure it out (create a new Windows user account and try it from there, try it from a clean boot, maybe even repair or re-install Windows). In the meantime, try running SFC to see if that helps.

Hi, have you tried completely disabling all security software and installing it?

Have you tried booting up into Safe Mode and installing it?

Try to remove it completely and reinstall to see if that helps. Here is a Java Uninstall Tool:
https://www.java.com/en/download/faq/uninstaller_toolfaq.xml

Try generating a log file during installation (if one doesn't already exist) by doing this:
https://www.java.com/en/download/help/log_files.xml

After you have a log file, maybe you can contact Sun and give them the log and maybe they can help.

had the same problem, wouldnt install and a window kept popping up.

uninstall any previous version of java

i download java JDK (not the JRE) full offline installation.

rebooted machine to kill any previous failed installation proccesses that may be running.

renamed it to JDK.EXE

move it to the C:\ so its location was C:\jdk.exe

opened up command prompt as ADMINISTRATOR

inside of command prompt i went to the C:\ directory and ran the following:

jdk.exe /s

this allows you to install in silent mode, i waited about 5 minutes and java was installed and working, you can verify it by going to your control panel and you should see the java control panel icon

I was having the same issue, with the process showing up in my Windows Task Manager's list of processes, but no installer.

I didn't do anything differently, but upon trying to install it again after so many tries, it gave me the text "This has already been installed".

I went to check my directory and indeed it was installed.

I think this might be a problem with the Java installer itself.
