Well Im back! After several years of not being on bleepingcomputer, I have returned!


Anyway, my question is about java, and mods please move this, if it is in the wrong category. Thanks


My scheduling system for work uses java. However at home on this laptop I do no have java installed apparently. When I try to install it via online or offline packages, i double click to run it, and nothing happens. looking at task manager, i see it running, but it hangs around 6700k for memory usuage. Then nothing.


It would be great to be able to do my work on my laptop than the work computer.


I do not recall all the information that you will need, but will definitely provide whatever is needed.


Thank you in advance.

Head over to http://www.ninite.com and grab the Java downloader from there. Run that and see if you have any luck.

Do you want to run JavaTM programs, or do you want to develop Java programs? If you want to run Java programs, but not develop them, download the Java Runtime Environment, or JRETM.


If you want to develop applications for Java, download the Java Development Kit, or JDKTM. The JDK includes the JRE, so you do not have to download both separately.


You need to create an account on the Oracle Website, get to the Java Downloads page, select more downloads. Then under 

Browse by Category:   Click: Java SE    (includes JavaFX) | Early Access


This gives you the option to download Java SE8 u60, with JDK, or JRE, along with all associated documentation, the current  versions


The Oracle site is the only way to get up to date Java software. I ought to know as I have programmed in Java for some years and I get all my Java software from  the official Oracle website.


If you have problems or further questions, post again.

It looks like OP is just running his Java program, so the JRE should suffice.

If I have read correctly, your Java situation is for "home laptop use."


Take a look that this post I recently created in the Computer Security Forum: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/591741/javainout-goodbad/


Personally, if you have further questions about your current Java issue, if it were me, I'd perhaps create a new thread in the General Security Forum (and reference this post as well?)


Apologies if I'm off base on where you might post.  I feel you would get faster answers there than here in the Windows 7 forum. All of us try to watch one anothers back IMO!!


Best of luck!
