    My problem is this; when attempting to install the latest update of java
    (version 6 update 16, in either 32-bit OR 64-bit flavours)
    i recieve the error message:

    Windows Installer
    This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package

    a search on this error message has turned up many many problems ranging back to xp, so i think i may be out of my tech depth here

    I recieve the same error message trying to install Steam using the installer, however i was able to unpack steam using winrar but attempting this with java yeilds more error messages

    I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on a machine i built myself, can provide spec if required

    Help would be greatly appreciated
