How to run Java

  PvG 12:36 26 Oct 2004

I have Windows XP and some sites say that I don't have Java rinning for some interactive games.
Is it part of XP and how can I enable it?

I have had problems with Java myself. I was advised to go to and search for the Java download. It should be in XP anyway, but try downloading it again. I have done it myself, but when I try to use yahoo chat rooms, then I have a message saying that the applet is not loading, and I should download Java. So I would appreciate any help that you get as well.

Download and install

click here

Once it is installed, go to Control panel>Internet Options>Advanced and ensure Use Java for applets is ticked (It may require a computer restart).

After that the applets should work fine.

Please ensure you download the JRE Windows Offline installation - I guarantee the other one wont work!
