Java Insulation Problem

Novice problem:
I downloaded the following file from the "Sun" web site today:
"j2sdk-1_4_2-nb-3_5_1-bin-windows". Its an .exe file. The size is less than 89 MB.
I have it in a directory on the E: drive that has 1.4 GB available. When I click on the file to open it I receive the following pop-up:
Error writing file= There may not be enough temporary disk space. Try using "-is:tempdir" to use a temporary directory on a partition with more disk space.
1) I would have thought that 1.4 GB would be enough to open almost any file.
2) I'm at a loss as where to write this.
Your time and help are greatly appreciated.

As this would seem to be a problem with using your operating system, let's continue the conversation over in the General Computing forum, where you've posted the same question.
