Java update Here

 

Don't forget to go to control panel > add remove programs and remove any older versions of java which you may have on your system.

Thanks for that info Glen, however I did do it via add and remove yesterday and I don't have that folder left in c/programs!

 

Ditto. :)

I wonder why the Check for Updates option via the Java icon in the Control Panel never works because according to the documentation it's supposed to be able to auto-update itself. And since it has never worked on my system I don't allow the update checker to run on Windows startup.

I agree, it's a complete waste of time.

Which one should I download? JDK 6, JDK 6+Netbeans, or Java Runtime Environment 6?

 

I'm guessing JDK 6, just from reading the some of the details. :huh:

 

Wait, I just checked my Add/ Remove Programs list, and it says I have Java 2 Runtime Environment, version 1.4.2-I think- :P A little outdated.
