    Description

      Steps to reproduce

      1. Install jre windows 1.8.0-b50
      2. Run a newer jre windows 1.8.0-b70
      3. By default, it will prompt you for a reinstall (unless REINSTALL_NO_PROMPT=1 is in xml file)

      In this case, it should detect that b70 is newer than b50, and just upgrade them without asking. No reinstall prompt should be necessary, and no xml flags should be needed to avoid the dialog.

      This fix is recommended by Jeannette.
