"Error 1330 Installing Java Runtime Environment" (JRE)

This client’s PC running Windows XP kept refusing to install the latest Java Runtime Environment. It seems such a problem is not that rare…

To cut a long story short, I came across this RAC_Reaper‘s post Re: Error 1330 (Invalid digital signature in installing 1.6.0_11, where he states:

“… I believe a regsvr32 initpki.dll is all you need to run and the 1330 error will go away.”

What this means is:

  1. Open a command prompt (console) window with administrative rights
  2. At the prompt type “regsvr32 initpki.dll” (without the quotes and hit “Enter”
  3. Run the JRE installation again. It should now work

It sure worked for me, thanks RAC_Reaper!
