Windows 7: Java updates???

11 Apr 2011   #11

windows 7

Hi - thanks for all your help - while fixing another problem, the problematic hanging of this computer has stopped (well, at least for the last 8h or so!!).. the problem fixed today was that Windows 7 (Enterprise) was expecting me to activate the programme as my company must not have done this when it was built just a year ago... I had tried to activate on line via my ISP here in HK - all to no avail.. BUT.. when I used my (Australian) work's VPN everything got fixed (assume quickly and with no other problems.. no message back from WIndows saying I hadn't activated the programme anyway!!).. so, all well at the moment..

Maybe the request to update JAVA and the computer hanging was purely coincidental.. another weird problem.. guess we'll never know the true answer..

Thank you, most sincerely, to all you good people who gave up your time and helped me - much appreciated.. Cheers (A very much relieved) Kenn R

Great news, Kenn! Thanks for posting back and letting us know.

Perhaps in the not too distant future you (or your IT department) might consider running that System File Checker just to make sure there aren't any corrupt system files. You're right ... definitely a weird problem.

Cannot Install Java Compiler or Java Updates
The thread title states the problem. I have downloaded JDKs several times, most recently a half-hour ago. When I double-click on them, Windows prompts me to confirm that I want to install the software. When I clear the prompt ("OK"), the prompt goes away, but nothing else happens. The same...
Java Updates Won't Install
I am unable to install Java updates. If I uninstall my current version of Java, I can easily download the latest version, but cannot do just the updates themselves. Any ideas?
Java Updates
When Java updates itself, why does it stack one after another each time. What I mean by that is, update 7 is 111MB and then update 8 is 111 MB, and so forth. After 21 of those, that will take up some storage! Why doesn't Java delete the old updates upon installing the new ones?
