Fix Java install error 1334 and Error 1723

I was getting the following installation errors while attempting to install Java on a client’s laptop.

Error 1334. The file ‘patchjre.exe’ cannot be installed because the file cannot be found in cabinet file ‘Data1.cab’.

Error 1723. There is a problem with this Windows installer package.

Both errors can occur while installing Java and similar errors can occur while installing or uninstalling any other software. This is caused by an error during the uninstall process which corrupts the registry.

Microsoft has a very nice tool for fixing installation problems which is part of its Fix it Center Online (currently in Beta).

To fix this error go to http://support.microsoft.com/mats/Program_Install_and_Uninstall

  • Run the application
  • Select option “Recommended (find and fix)”
  • Select Uninstall Program
  • Select program from list and click next

If you have more than one programme giving you trouble, run this same procedure for each one of them.

Oracle to own MySQL

Sun and Oracle today announced a definitive agreement for Oracle to acquire Sun for $9.50 per share in cash. The Sun Board of Directors has unanimously approved the transaction. It is anticipated to close this summer. This news comes as a shock after IBM recently failed to reach an agreement with Sun Microsystems.

What’s the future of MySQL now that the world’s largest commercial proprietary database vendor will soon be owning the world’s largest open source database project?

With the acquisition due to take place this summer, Oracle will own not just MySQL but also the Java Platform, Open Office, VirtualBox, Open Solaris … what will happen with these applications, specially OpenOffice?
