Windows Java Updates Prior to the Latest....

12th January 2007

'Morning to all of you clever folks out there.... (never let me down yet) -

This morning, I was notified that Update 10 for Windows Java 2 was available for download from Sun Microsystems, - so I downloaded it & installed it.

Now, - these updates are around 120MB each, & on checking my Control Panel>>Add or Remove Programs, - I can see that 7 of the previous updates are still using 800MB+ of my 'Windows' Partition of my Hard Disk Drive.

What I need to know, please, is "Are the Updates Cumulative, Like Service Packs for Windows?" - If you have SP2 installed on your Windows XP, - it *includes* SP1; - does the same thing apply with these Java Updates? - That is, can I delete (through the Control Panel) ALL of the Java Updates prior to today's (No.10)- & thus regain over 800MB of HDD Space?

I'd be grateful to anyone who can help..... I'm tempted to delete the *Old* Updates Anyway; - I just need confirmation that it would be OK to do so..... (if indeed it is).

Thanks Guys...

I have deleted the earlier versions. It is best to delete all and re install the latest version again if you want to be perfect but it is not essential.
