I have Java Runtime 1.5 Build 6 installed. I understand that Build 7 is the current.
However, when I go to the Java console (through control panel) and click on update, it says this:

"You already have the latest Java™ Platform on this system"

Is this a bug? I have Windows 2000 SP4 and IE 6, SP1 installed and all are fully patched.

Also, should I install build 7 on top of build 6, without uninstalling. Or, should I completely uninstall Build 6 and then install build 7?

Thanks, in advance. :thumbsup:

The site above is where I downloaded update 7 from. I don't think I had to delete the older version. Just check in Add/ remove after installing to make sure you only have the one version. I did not uninstall old version before installing newer version.
