Hello. I'm trying to install Java 7 & I keep getting this error:
installer : wrapper.createfile failed with error 5: access is denied

I have uninstalled all previous versions of Java, tried installing as administrator...

Nothing is working.

Make sure no other program is running that may use the Java files.... use the Task manager to kill processes and apps that aren't needed at the time of installing the Java package.

I had that problem -- I discovered that the permissions had gotten munged on the AppData/LocalLow/Sun folder ("Administrators" need to have full control so the install program can read/write; instead, there was no listing at all for "Administrators"). When I gave "Administrators" full-control privileges over the directory, the install worked.

Thank you so much for this. I could not figure out what could possibly be wrong, and this fixed it! After trying to install it from different sources and using Microsoft FixIt, I thought i was out of luck. But this worked! Thanks again!

I had the same problem. Here's what I did:

1. I downloaded the current Java version installer
2. Used the uninstall Java app at http://java.com/en/download/uninstallapplet.jsp
3. Went into Control Panel/Uninstall a Program and made sure Java was uninstalled
4. Closed out of all programs (including browser)
5. Deleted the folder cited above
6. Installed Java as Administrator

Worked like a charm and I finally have Java installed.
