Java 8 installation runs only with /SILENT parm. - without it fails. Missing GUI component?

I tried to install the latest JDK resp JRE package an a 64bit Windows system by double clicking on the 32bit offline package
jdk-8u311-windows-i586.exe
resp
jre-8u311-windows-i586.exe
The installation process starts but no further progress (even after 30 minutes) is observable.
The installation process is alive and running as the TaskManager shows it. I have to kill it to stop installation. No other (previous, old) Java version is installed.
As I found out I have to type at the CommandPrompt:
jre-8u311-windows-i586.exe /SILENT
to get it successfully installed.
It seems to my the JDK/JRE installation package has problems to find and use the necessary GUI output library to show User installation window in non-silent installation.
Whats wrong?
How can I provide this GUI library?
