Sun has updated the version of JRE from Version 6 Update 7 to Version 6 Update 10. There is no mention of the changes and the sudden jump from 7 to 10. The only thing mentioned during installation is JavaFX.
During installation on a computer running Windows XP SP3, it encountered the error as shown. This is puzzling as there is no other installation going on at the same time. But, it worked on another computer running Windows Vista SP1.
