yesterday my windows updated it self when i shut down. using windows 7 home premium. i had java SE 6 update 19 before - was working fine the last week. i did try to re install the JRE as it was not working in firefox
today when i tried to use a java program - java threw an error:
Registry key 'Software\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\CurrentVersion'
has value '1.5', but '1.6' is required.
Error: could not find java.dll
Error: could not find Java SE Runtime Environment.
i can see the java files in the installed foler (java_home) points to it. i tried to uninstall from the control panel but the uninstaller says "A required DLL is not found cannot uninstall"
and the installer wont let me install to a new location till I uninstall the current
also wanted to know besides not being able to join a domain etc what are the differences between Home Premium and windows 7 enterprise? is there a list somewhere?
should i switch off windows auto update - and only apply critical patches manually?
