Thread: Updating Java

  1. #1

    Default Updating Java

    Update Java Is Now Hosted By Oracle

    Latest Java


    Original Post

    mrr19121970 (author of the outstanding Clown BD ) has been expending unnecessary time lately helping folks with problems related to Java, not to Clown BD.

    Before asking for help if you are having trouble with his program. Why not first make sure your Java is up to date and that the older versions are cleaned out.

    1) Click here, Java, and download/install the latest version.

    2) Download and run Javara , a free, open-source tool to make sure the older version of Java has been cleaned out.

    This is good for your machine even if you are not doing it for Clown BD

    Anyway, the registry key and the suggested approach both are correct.

    Here is a standalone checker, the same function I've installed in Clown_BD:

    JAVA Version Check

    I've tested on Vista & XP x32 & x64. Should be 'future proof', assuming JavaxFamily is derived from CurrentVersion 1.x

    And if Java does not get completely removed from the previous version, and you find you can not install the latest version.

    Try this:

    Manually remove the Java folder from program folders. Then you should be able to install the latest version without any problems.

    Also, I see Java has a download manager now, approximately 200kb (zipped download file) and show make it easier to remove/add future updates of Java.

    I've not had this happen in terms of the previous version not being uninstalled. Long ago I remember that installing a new version left the old one behind and simply created a new directory with the new Java but more recent versions will uninstall the old version before installing the new version when you run the installer. I've had no issues with being able to install a newer version.

    The download manager for Java has been around for awhile and I find it to be nothing more than an annoyance. I really recommend not using the download manager. I also recommend just using the offline installer. It may be the bigger file but it's not that big and if you set it aside you can quickly get a newly installed system up and running quickly without needing to go online to grab the installer.

    No, Update 15 is not the latest release. Apparently that webpage lags in listing the newest release. In fact, Java 1.6.0 Update 16 has been out since the 11th of August.

    I recommend using this link: http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp. This link is mentioned earlier in the thread and I mentioned it in another thread concerning Java when a forum member was having trouble locating Update 15 on Sun's site when it was released. This link is far more accurate and updated regularly.

    it's not forcing you, but suggesting an update. you can either uncheck allow internet access or answer 'no' when prompted and never get asked again.
