        When the dialog is dismissed, the installer hangs.

        EXPECTED -
        I expected to see the installer dialog.
        ACTUAL -
        I saw an error message about ESC, and when I dismissed it the installer hung.

        ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
        Content within this application coming from the website listed below is being blocked by Internet Explorer Security Configuration.

          Looks like the issue affect only a case when installer is run from network location and the location is not configured to be "trusted site" or intranet zone. In the case IE considers the location as "internet" and IE ESC disables script execution.
          In the original report the path is file://C:\harry\jre-8u65-windows-i586.exe, I was able to reproduce the case by using junction point:
          mklink /D "c:\local\dir" "k:\upload\dir" (k is a network drive)

          Tested with 8u71 b08

          Steps to Reproduce:
          1) From Start menu: Administrative Tools -> Server Manager -> Configure IE ESC
          2) Set settings: Admin: ON Users: ON
          3) Launch IE
          4) Launch JRE from network drive NOT local drive

          JRE installed successfully and no error message was given to the user.
