The installation program is bombing on me
when I try to install JDK1.3 on my windows 2000
server machine. The install program worked on
another machine but not on this one.
The error I'm getting is:
Can't run 16-bit Windows program:-
Cannot find file C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\pft90~tmp\disk1\SETUP.EXE (or
one of its components). Check to ensure the path and filename are correct and that
all required libraries are available.
Can anyone help ?

You don't want to run a 16 bit program. You need the 32 bit version. Perhaps you downloaded the wrong version.

This is just so weird. I've been successful with
installing JDKs or JREs in the past - so I am
suspecting that it's an OS security issue.
I've redownloaded the JDK and it gives me the
same error. Aaaarghhh!

use winzip to explore the installer and execute it from the inside, worked for me.
I agree. Here's the link:
