Java 8 installation issue (K2000)
Having issues with Java 8 installations. The tasks fails and the deployment halts. However Java 8 is still installed. And if I click "resume task execution" without waiting too long, the red cross becomes a green check symbol and the tasks continues without any problem (se screenie). If I linger too long at the failed task troubleshooting or having a cup of coffe, and then click resume, everything below fails.
The Java install task is pretty straight forward. An application task type simply executing "jre-8u66-windows-i586.exe /s". Start /wait doesn't seem to be supported here. I've also tried with execution a script.cmd that contains "start /wait jre-8u66-windows-i586.exe /s", but then /s is not regonized. All contained in a zip of course.
Below are some screenies I took.
Please help, I'm going nuts with this one. I've also looked for msi's of Java 8 but out of luck.

to get the msi, on a workstation open a browser and go to java.com, download and install
you will then find the msi in the user that you used to install java with
