Oracle switched to VS2010 for some part of Java6, that´s why the
latest Java6 JRE updates won´t install on Win2K.

However, I managed to hammer the latest Java6u35+ or thereabouts just
by copying files over from a WinXP install over the Win2K previous
JRE6 install and guess what? it works.... it seems it´s part of the
installer that needs MSVC runtimes that can´t be run in Win2K...
