XP Prof and java prob help please..thanks

  bof:) 19:53 03 Mar 2003

Hi all,

I have a friend who is using XP Proffesional and had an error message saying 'game cannot be played on line because a java plug in was needed.'

she was trying to play a waord game in the DealOne Arcade website.

I've found a Java package for XP at Downloads.com but this sends you to Sun microsystem's website to get a download.

Then you get a message about a 'ticket being invalid or out of date'. And download stops.

Could you please tell me where I can get the Java update for XP Professional.

Hi Ali G,

Thanks for the fast reply.

are you sure this works on windows XP? I have to get this right cos my friend isn't that up with PC's.

I note on the site it says its for windows 98/NT/2000 but there is no mention of XP.

I know XP is supposed to be 'backwards compatable' but wasnt there some sort of problem with Microsoft XP and none XP java?

Or am I just getting a bit confused?

Thanks again,

no this does work cos he had xp pro and it was exactly what he needed hes not to clued up either........If it doesnt work just de-install it.I have just read another subject with someone and the same sort of prob.He got an answer witch was to install the sp 1 update again,so this may help. Thanx Ali G.......
