You need to run the offline java download for the MSI to go in this location. To do so, on http://www.java.com, click on downloads in the menu bar. Then click on more downloads link and select the offline version. When you install this, it will unpack the MSI to the location c:\documents and settings\\Application Data\Sun\Java\jre

Hope this helps.
