Re: Java Updates??




On 9/19/2018 5:32 AM On a whim, Daniel pounded out on the keyboard

Over the last couple of months, I've received several notifications
about a Java (not JavaScript!!) update being available for my Win7 Pro
but, when I click on the notification, I quickly get told that the
Update could not be installed.

If I go to Start->Control Panel->Java (32bit) Control Panel and select
"About" on the General tab, it shows "Version 8 Update 161 (build
1.8.0_161-b12)

If I then select the "Update" tab and click the "Update Now" button, I
told there is a Java Update Available (Java 8 Update 181) but, when I
then click the "Update>" button, I rapidly get a "Error - Java Update"
window which tells me "Failed to download required installation files".

Again .... and again ... and again!!

Is it just me?? Is there a problem with my Win7 system??

Anyone got a valid suggestion??

Hi Daniel,

I've seen that on just about every Win7 machine. I don't even bother waiting for it to fail any more, and download the file manually when I see an update is available.

Hope all is well,

Terry
