    are you sure it was the client intel one? i just got this error message when trying to install it..."You cannot install Security Update 2008-007 (Intel) on this volume. This volume does not meet the requirements for this update."

    help? :confused:

    If you are on Leopard (10.5.x), the update is here
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/securityupdate2008007clientleopard.html

    (don't install the TIGER version - the System Requirements should be shown at the bottom of the download page).

    If you happen to be on Tiger (10.4.x), get the update from
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/securityupdate2008007clientintel.html

    I take it you are on Leopard and tried to apply the Tiger update (Leopard updates are generally Universal - Tiger ones are separate for PPC and Intel).

    I'm having the same problem on an imac as well - the java update 2 ver 1 will not install. Tried the suggestion above on the combo updater, but still the same problem. It gets to about 66% in progress and hangs there.

    Would deleting java folder and then updating solve it? Any suggestions?
