I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
Up to now, I have been going with the 32-bit version JRE (i586) - which seems to be working just fine and without any issues.
I'm wondering if there would be any advantages for me to install the 64-bit version ?
Any advice and input would be greatly appreciated.
Which Java download should I choose for my 64-bit Windows operating system?:http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/java_win64bit.xml
Thanks for the link Richie - it told me exactly what I needed to know.
32-bit it is, for me.
You're welcome Straspey.
I have a problem updating firefox with the new version of java. :-(
When I go to:
It verifies I have the latest version:
"You have the recommended Java installed (Version 7 Update 9)"
But when I run firefox plugin check, it says that my java
is out of date and sends me to a download of version 7, update 9.
Should I manually remove version 7, update 9 and install
Try downloading and running JavaRa Version 2.0 to completely remove all versions of Java from your pc,then reboot.Download JavaRa Version 2.0:http://singularlabs.com/software/javara/javara-download/Once all versions have been removed,download/install the latest version of Java via the link in my initial post above.
I downloaded and ran JavaRa Version 2.0
But when I go into firefox/plugins, it says:
Java Deployment Toolkit 22.214.171.124 10.9.2.5 (disabled).
So it seems that FF thinks that Java is still installed,
even though I see no java in control panel/Programs and Features.
Should I download the latest Java per your instructions, or
do I need to do something to get the remnants of
Java Deployment Toolkit off FF?
Launch JavaRa,click on the 'Additional Tasks' button.Place a checkmark in the box 'Remove Outdated JRE Firefox Extensions',then click on Run.Then download/install Java again,per the steps above.
The image below is what i have in Firefox under Plugins after updating to the latest version of Java.
I've done a little searching around and found those Plugins are both correct for this latest version of Java.
Java Deployment Toolkit 126.96.36.199 10.10.2.18
If you're not developing Java applications,which you say you're not,then that plugin isn't any use to you so you can just 'Disable' it.
