        Description

        PIT: Vista: silent jre (build 86) install failed on Vista Beta2 (builds 5381/5384).
        It is failed only on Vista, WinXP/2k are fine.
        To be able to reproduce it, you need to login as an Administrator (hidden build in account):
        * To enable "Administrator" login, uncheck the option "Account is Disabled" from Windows Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Users and Groups --> Computer Management --> Local Users and Groups --> Users --> Select Administrator user --> right click on "Administrator" user id --> properties --> uncheck "Account is Disabled"

        Then follow the following steps:

            * 1) Run: regedit
            * 2) Click on Allow from the Windows Security dialog.
            * 3) In the Registry Editor, browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
            * 4) Add a new key called SpecialAccounts (without the quotes).
            * 5) In the SpecialAccounts key you just made, create a sub-key called UserList (without the quotes)
            * 6) Make sure you are navigated to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList
            * 7) In the UserList key, create a new DWORD (32-bit) item and name it Administrator.
            * 8) Double click on the new DWORD item and set its value to 1.
            * 9) Log out and log back in as Administrator

        Steps to reproduce:
        - from cmd try to execute "jre160.exe /s"
        you will get error: "Installer:Wrapper.CreateFile failed with error 3: The system cannot find the path specified."
