I can not access the Java Control panel and need to re-install an older version for one of my apps to run correctly. However only the latest version pops up when you go to the site. Does anyone know ho to access the archive. Found a problem installing the latest from both online and offline, the installation keep failing. Any suggestions?

With the latest Java Updates being told to remove older versions of Java you might be out of luck.  What application requires older java?
