    Re: Java Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 7

    Thanks for info Tony. I have J2SE set to check for downloads on a monthly basis, so at some point I'll get offered the update automatically. Have a question though that perhaps you can answer? When I check my Add/Remove programmes listing I see that I have J2SE runtime 5.0 updates 4 and 6 installed, taking up 144 and 145MB respectively. Ought I be able to remove updates 4 and 6 when I get 7, or are previous updates needed to ensure J2SE runs as it should? Any idea? Would have thought that new updates should remove previous ones, or am I being naive?

    Check this answer from Sun MIcrosystems

    Do I need multiple versions of the JRE installed on my system?

    Re: Java Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 7

    <hr>The latest version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) contains updates to previous versions. There might be some applications or applets written and tested against a specific version of the JRE.<hr>
    It has always rather worried me that developers seem to be writing for a 'moving target'. (How does their code pick the correct version of the Java run-time to run against?).

    Re: Java Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 7

    Problem for me with this update...I got the popup:
    Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.

    I had uninstalled the previous version, rebooted, then dl'ed from the proper link. I did the install dl from 'online'...should I try 'offline' or what?

    Help.

    TIA

    OK...I've got it installed again...after going into Safe Mode and deleting all reference to Sun, etc.
    I just checked in the dled installed programs in Internet Options... - see attach -...the 1 has a yellow symbol (which is for the Regular IE browser)...and the other 2 listing are for the Netscape Navigator browser - which I DON'T want at all.

    This is driving me bonkers!

    If it is installed correctly, I wouldn't remove anything, even if it seems extraneous. I doubt those plug-ins take up very much space (and space is cheap compared with time and aggravation...).

    Thanks, but doesn't a <font color=yellow>yellow</font color=yellow> symbol with an <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15> mean that there is something wrong with it?

    It can't really be 56MB, can it? The download page shows sizes like 7.1MB ("online installation") and 16MB ("offline installation"): http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp.

    See appendage below - but 'tis likely they may use a better compression/expansion method...
