Hi folks,I'm tring to update java on my computer.I currently have version 1.4.2_05 and 5.0 update 6.When I try to uninstall the first one it's saying "the feature you're tring to use is on a cd-ROM disk that is not availiable,insert the java disc to continue".I don't have any disc though.Will it be ok to install the most recent version of java over the top of the?This will mean there will be 3 versions of java on the computer.Could this cause problems?Thanks.
I ran the removal tool and I got a warning saying that if I remove it I will need to have a copy of the operating system to reinstall it and that microsoft don't have to supply it,or something to that effect.Is this one of those"if it aint broke don't fix it" situations?My computers working fine I just thought that I would be better off with the latest versions.Thanks.
Are you saying I should install the new version but also keep the other 2 versions installed?I'm having a bit of trouble uninstalling them anyway.Version 1.4.2_05 deleted ok manually from program files but version 5 wont..Should I restore it then?Thanks.
Each version is separate and independent, and can be deleted.
The safest way to remove the old versions is to remove all versions in the reverse order of their install, then install the wanted version. The 1.3 versions sometimes have shown undesired interactions with later versions.
I'm having problems uninstalling them(add/remove programs).When I try to uninstall one version it says you already have this version installed and the other one asks me to insert a java disc which I dont have,it came installed on my computer.Any ideas how to go about getting rid of them.Thanks.
