    Java 8, 32 and 64 bit


    I use both 32 and 64 bit browsers so I had Java in both versions up to v7. Now I installed Java 8, 64 bit, then tried to install the 32 bit version. The installer, however, halted for I 'already had it'. Does it mean that from v8 the 64 bit Java can also be used by the 32 bit browsers?

    If you allowed the automatic update it probably did install the 32-bit version. As noted on that page there's an both online and offline install for the 32-bit but only offline for the 64-bit version.

    Thank you it must have happened so.However, when I tried to check, I got even more confused. I searched for 'java' in start and found one exe file; went to its location, looked up its properties, and saw file version 7. In the browsers I only see 'enable java', how can I check if it's the latest version?
