    Unhappy Can't install JDK 9 because “Another Java installation is in progress”

    I have been using JDK 9 on Windows 10 x64 for a while but when I went to install the latest early release (b174), I first uninstalled the previous version (as usual) and then ran the new installer.

    It fails with a message box saying "Another Java installation is in progress. You must complete that installation before you can run this installer".

    It seems there are some artifacts around causing the problem but only for JDK 9 as I can uninstall & reinstall JDK 8 without any issues. Also, the same problem occurs if I try to run the installers for any prior JDK 9 releases as well (even though they worked before).

    Searches have suggested various options like using a Microsoft MSI clean-up tool and registry hacks but nothing is helping.

    Can anyone suggest a way to get JDK 9 installed (as now I cannot use any release of JDK 9 at all)?

    Have you tried this ?

    SOLUTION 1

    Please follow the steps below for resolving this issue.

    1.Remove any traces of the failed Java installation by uninstalling Java
    2.Download and install the Windows offline installer package.


    SOLUTION 2

    1.Launch the Windows Start menu.
    2.In the search box type services.msc and click OK.
    3.In the Services window that opens up scroll down and look for Windows Installer.
    4.Select Windows Installer and Right Click and select Properties.
    5.Click on Startup type drop down and select Disabled.
    6.Click Apply and then Click OK.
    7.Now Restart your computer.
    8.Repeat the above steps 1 through 4.
    9.In the Windows Installer Properties window, Click on Startup type drop down and select Manual.
    10.Click Apply and then click OK.

    Hi,

    I tried both of those but for some reason I am unable to change the Startup Type of of Windows Installer as it is greyed-out and set to Manual (even though I am an Administrator on this machine). So I can't really get past step 5.

    BTW, here is a log file produced when I try to install JDK 9. I don't know if it helps.

    Try to delete:
    C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\JAVA_INSTALL_FLAG
    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\JAVA_INSTA LL_FLAG

    This should unlock the installer.
