Installing Java

>>.. but now in chrome browser it asks for java plugin installation and iam not able to do so<<

• See "How do I use Java with the Google Chrome browser?" where it addresses "Java plug-in needs permission" and related issues.

>>..when ever i try to it shows a msg saying " the installer cannot proceed with the current internet connection settings<<

Did you download the "offline" installer? I would recommend the following:

• Remove all prior versions. Depending on your OS, go to Control Panel > Add/Remove. Or if Windows 7 .. Control Panel > Programs and Features.

• Download (and unzip) JavaRa. (You must run JavaRa with administrator rights)

JavaRa should remove any leftovers. If for any reason JavaRa doesn't remove all remnants, the free version of Revo Uninstaller will surely do the job.

• Try installing Java 17 update 7 again. Make sure to select the offline installer, after first accepting the license agreement. (With Windows 64-bit version, you will also need to install "Windows X86")

Best of luck..

Correction..

Just above the download link at the bottom of the post, it should read: "Try installing Java 7 update 17 again"

"Someone" must have transposed the numbers. Silly

No Need To Worry..

In reply to: re

Carol mistakenly inverted the Java version into version 17 instead of 7, and inverted the "update" version to 7 instead of 17.. As you indicated in your first post, you are attempting to install the correct Java 7 Update 17 version. Keep up the good work.

Hope this helps.

Only If You Have Window 64 bit (You Didn't Tell Us)
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / March 25, 2013 5:20 AM PDT
In reply to: re

Unfortunately, you didn't tell us the version of Windows you have installed on your computer, so Carol's covering all basis here.. If you're running Windows 7 Home 64 bit, (RIGHT click on "My Computer", choose 'Properties' to show your version of Windows. ) for example, it uses Internet Explorer in both 32 bit and 64 bit versions. If you're running Windows XP 32 bit, then you only need to install the 32 bit version of Java..

Hope this helps.
