      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      None to report. JDK 6.0 won't install

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      2 GB RAM
      Pentium IV 2.12 GHZ

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The Windows 32 bit JDK 6.0 installer at: http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp will not open and does not give any error indication of what went wrong. Uninstalled JDK 5.0 to test, no joy. Re-downloaded the installer, no joy. Re-installed JDK 5.0 with success.

      The netBeans 5.5 co-bundle with JDK 6.0 fails to install the JDK as well, netBeans 5.5 installed just fine.

      The online install executable will not work either with no indication of why not. A window pop-up instantaneously, but too quickly to see what it says.

      This is the first JDK 6.0 of any build I've tried to install.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Simply downloading the off-line installer for both JDK 6.0 and the netBeans 5.5/JDK 6.0 co-bundle install executables from http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp and double clicking does nothing. Calling either executable from a command window reveals nothing as well.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The installer to unpack and install the JDK at Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0
      ACTUAL -
      Nothing happens and no errors present themselves.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      None to report.
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Sticking with JDK 5.0 until this gets resolved.
