Re: Java SE Runtime Environment 6, UPDATE 1, now available

Thanks David,

Just wondering, have you or any of the other experts here ever been able to find the Java updates from having the "Automatic Update" feature active from within the control panel? I never have.

Re: Java SE Runtime Environment 6, UPDATE 1, now available

I've never tried looking for Java updates from the Control Panel....
 
and I use WinPatrol to disable the  Sun Java Update Scheduler -- JUSched --- from automatically running every time I boot up my PCs.

The Java Control Panel updater has never worked for me either, and I've seen so many reports of this behavior that I believe it is the usual experience.
 
Like ky331, I disabled JUSched- always get updates directly from the website.

joe53,

Yup...same here. I had been curious if ANYONE had EVER been notified by the auto updater for java, as it has been my experience that with every update notice I find either in one of these forums, or by going to look for myself, that my java auto updater just sits there dead as a piece of road kill totally oblivious to any update that sun micro puts out there on the web.

Makes me wonder what the auto updater is designed to do...certainly not update your java software as would be the most obvious assumption.

Like you (and probably most others) I disable mine for the useless waste of resources that it consumes.



On another note, completely unrelated but probably interesting to the two of you, I see we've all grown used to the forum software not working the line breaks for any of the posts in any of the boards.

Just wonder how difficult it is for one of Dell's highly trained techs to add a [br]
to the html code.
What I find interesting is that the html code for a line break won't post properly using the angel brackets which indicates to me that it works just fine...one only needs to include it and link it to the check box lol

Re: Java SE Runtime Environment 6, UPDATE 1, now available

Java 6 supports Windows XP (Home/Pro),  2000 (Pro/Server), Server 2003, and Vista.  
 
 
To be technical, you can still install and use Java 6 on Windows 98/ME, but such use is not "supported":
Note: Trying to install the Java SE Runtime Environment on a non-supported version of Microsoft Windows or on a machine that doesn't have a sufficiently up-to-date Service Pack will cause the installer to generate this warning: "We recommend that you do not install this Java platform for the following reasons: This Java platform does not support the operating system or operating-system service pack on this machine."
 
 
However, Java 5 is still available --- it supports Windows 98SE and ME, and the latest version here is 1.5.0_11

Re: Java SE Runtime Environment 6, UPDATE 1, now available

I used to regularly update my Java software until I discovered that some websites don't work correctly with the newer software. I'm using version 1.5.0.10 and will stick with it unless I have problems with Java-enabled websites.

If you are using that outdated version you realize that you are vulnerable, don't know?

Re: Java SE Runtime Environment 6, UPDATE 1, now available

Download the offline version.

Reboot, and execute it when you get back on your desktop.

Any other questions, just let me know.
