    Are we just stuck until Oracle updates Java to allow it to be compatible with Windows 8.1?

    Mine seems to be working now but it shows incompatible but works...lol

    8.1


    I just "upgraded" from windows 8 to 8.1.

    I do much share trading with a program that is Java based. Windows 8.1 will not run my share trading program. The inability to trade has cost me a fortune. I have read al forums and tried everything I can to get my Java based program working. Using IE 11. Disabled many security measures etc to no avail.

    This is the worst upgrade ever. Do not upgrade to 8.1 if you have critical work a hand. Help!! how do I fix this problem? Alternatively, is there an easy means of going back to windows 8?

    unbelievable Microsoft could issue such a dud upgrade.

    Go here.
    You need both 32 & 64 bit java.
    If you follow the instructions, you should have no problems.

    Also, you must reboot after installing java for it to work.

    Yes. Tried several times. Wasted a day on this already. Not withstanding have latest ASUS zenbook, more efficient to by a new ultrabook that does not run than 8.1 rather than waste time on this mess.

    I have Windows 8.1 Pro wmc.

    I had no trouble installing or using JAVA across several different browsers.

    IE11,Waterfox, & Opera.

    You could take it to a computer shop & let them install JAVA for you.
    It shouldn't take them long to do it, since it is so simple to do.

    8.1


    Solution. Had to add program to compatibility view settings. I have run the same trading program for a decade. Installed on 95, XP, Vista, & and 8. Sure there has been a few problems over the decade with correct Java installation and pop up blockers. This one is new. Clearly 8.1 is different - and that is a bad thing.
