When i download the files they are of 0 size, and will not execute.

Use the right click method on the links to download.

Worked as described for me, no issues.

Thank you Allan.

Installed without incident, and, by actually reading (egads!) I finally understand what the difference is between JDK and JRE.

Oh, my brain hurts from learning so much... :blink:


All kidding aside, thanks again for the update.

Onward,

Winterland

Thanks Allan, painless offline install.

The odd thing was my Java module said I already had the latest platform, which was 6, update 26.

From: http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/java7.xml

Why is Java SE 7 not yet available on java.com?
The new release of Java is first made available to the developers to ensure no major problems are found before we make it available on the java.com website for end users to download the latest version.
