I’m working on a web site project with a Java component and am currently testing for cross-browser compatibility. Most is fine but the Java part won’t load on 64-bit browsers. Looks like I need a 64-bit JRE to test. Where does one download the (off-line) 64-bit Java runtime installer for Windows?
The official download page is here: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
Unless I’m blind, nothing 64-bit there for Windows except a link to notes. Said notes are here: http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/java_win64bit.xml#Java%20for%2064-bit
Particularly relevant excerpt:
“Users should download 64-bit Java software, if they are running 64-bit
IE. For downloading 64-bit Java click 64-bit manual download“
The only off-line installer, as far as I can tell, has only installed the 32-bit runtime. Then we’re back at square one! Am I missing something or going nuts?
Might this be the download you are looking for?
- Go to the Java SE Downloads Page.
- Scroll down a tad look for the main table with the header of “Java Platform, Standard Edition”
- Click the JRE Download Button (JRE is the runtime component. JDK is the developer’s kit).
- Select the appropriate download (all platforms and 32/64 bit downloads are listed)
