Every time i attempt to install JRE 7u9 the installer gives me an error saying that java ran into an unexpected error please try installing later. Whenever i try I get the same error. I attempted to uninstall Java 7u7 but the uninstalled quits in the middle, when i go to check what java version i have installed it gives me nothing. Please help, I desperately need JRE.

You are going to have to provide us exact error codes. – Ramhound Nov 22 '12 at 23:14
No error codes are given it just closes itself. – Luqman Yasin Nov 23 '12 at 14:35
Look into the temp directory usually log files are created there. – Robert Nov 23 '12 at 15:54
@Robert I can't seem to find the Temp directory on windows 8 :S – Luqman Yasin Nov 23 '12 at 18:38
Win+R, %TMP% or %TEMP% should get you there (as long as the environment variables are defined correctly). – Karan Nov 23 '12 at 21:36

I just installed JRE 6u34 and it works fine, seems Windows 8 just doesn't like the new JRE. Thanks for the help anyway guys.
