I have Java installed on my laptop. A message popped-up saying that the latest Java version was available for download but when I try to install it the program suddenly shuts down. How do I install the latest Java version?
How do I install the latest Java version?
Installing a newer Java version is an easy job. But first you need to know the type of Java installation you want because Java comes in two versions: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and Java Development Kit (JDK).
The JRE is what you need if you want to run programs written in Java while JDK is what you need if you want to write your own Java programs.
What ever version of java you want here is how to get it:
1. go to Control panel –> Add/Remove programs –> then find your current Java installation and click Remove.
2. go to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html and choose either JRE or JDK as explained before and download it.
3. Run the installation and reboot your device.
Now you have the latest Java version on your device.
