if the IE browser already has a JVM running (say 6u45) while you attempt to install a new JRE (say 6u71), the installer will prompt user to close the browser.

Once you are prompted by the installer to close IE, there are two options presented "close browser and continue" (which works ok) or "Later" (which does not work).

Clicking "Later" does not cancel installation, and prompt you to re-login to complete the installation.

If you check from control panel->programs and features, you see that 6u71 being installed.

If you log out and log back in,  nothing else changed.   java -version

as well as the version test

(http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp)  still returns 6u45. 

Verified this bug on 6u85 b04. The verification shows that it is Fix failed. To reproduce: - Check NO JDK/JRE on the system - Install JRE 6u45 - Open IE with a Java applet - Install JRE 6u85 b04 - A files in use dialog appears - Click on Later button - Log off and log back in - A Java runonce prompt appears - Click on run - Java welcome dialog appears - Click on Install button Expected: Java 6u85 should be installed Actual: After the welcome dialog, nothing showed up. Java 6u85 didn't get installed at all
