    [/QUOTE]Just right click a link & choose to open in a new window.

    If that doesn't work for you, I'll download them & attach them in a new post.[/QUOTE]

    They're working, must have been a connection issue. I've tried everything there twice already thanks. I've yet to find a solution posted anywhere where a user confirms the issue is resolved! If I do find the issue I will post what worked for me.

    Ok, Java is recognised only using Java 6 in Windows 8 (for me). Installing Java 7 on top or standalone renders Java not being recognised at all.

    Guess Java 6 it is and if I find a solution I will post.

    java


    I helped a friend with this issue, we installed both the 64 bit and the 32 bit and yay it finally worked also make sure your java is enabled and that your security is set to medium.





    link for the 32 bit that we used Java Runtime Environment 1.7.0.25 (32-bit) Download for Windows / FileHorse.com

    Most probably the 32bit works because the browsers most people use are 32bit as well so the 64bit java is useless online unless you use a 64bit browser (Pale Moon, WaterFox, IE 64bit, Opera...).

    Interesting.
    Install one by one, install from official sources, do reboots between installs... seems to work...
    That means there is no problem at all.

    IT allways works for me.
    FileHippo is trustworthy.

    You need 32 & 64 bit java on Windows 8.

    My java test :

    There is no problem at all unless someone has done some very silly things with their computer.

    Agree.

    Not really. I use 64bit only. They are the same. 64bit works in 64bit browsers and 64bit IDE's for developpment and it includes all functionality of the 32bit one.
    Installing both will fill more of your storage space. The 32bit one will be sufficient if you only run 32bit browsers and applets.

    Yep, this will always remain an issue.
