Error 1603. Feature transfer error

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I had this fatal error during the installation of Java. I don’t know why could cause this error and how can it be solved. Please experts can you help me to solve this fatal error ? I have to say that I just cleaned up my PC because I had some viruses and I think that might be the problem. Thanks!

Since that’s a fatal error, you must be installing the wrong or incompatible version of JRE. If you use 32-bit Microsoft Windows, the highest possible version you can install is Java Runtime Environment 8 because this is the last version of JRE that provides 32-bit version. For users with 32-bit Microsoft Windows, download Java SE Runtime Environment 8. Here, two versions are available for download: 8u161 and 8u162.

Download Java SE Runtime Environment 8u162 since this is the latest for JRE 8. If you use 64-bit Microsoft Windows, you can download Java SE Runtime Environment 9.0.4. JRE 9 is currently the latest Java Runtime Environment and it is available only for 64-bit Microsoft Windows. You can also download the 64-bit version of JRE 8.
