Hi everyone;

 

 

We at work are having issues with Java. We at work use Oracle and we are using an older version of Java. We stopped updates from Java for all users, but some machines get theupdates and Oracle just doesn´t run.

 

 

The issue is we need to uninstall Java and install the correct version of it, Java 6 update 51, but we always expirience problems because of remnants of other installations. 

 

 

Is there a way or a software that will delete all the entries of Java in the registry that you can recommend?

 

 

 

I´ve read in the net and found some that we are currently testing, but we want to see if you guys have any recommendations.

 

 

 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

Regards,

I would use the official uninstaller from java.com: https://java.com/en/download/faq/uninstaller_toolinfo.xml

 

But why do you need to install an outdated Java version in the first place? The new versions are backward compatible. The outdated versions are a big security risk that I personally would not take.

Thanks for the reply. For some reason the backward compatibility does not work in our case. We have tried it all, the applet simply wont run.

 

Maybe we are doing something wrong and this compatibility is not working in our enviroment. 

 

We´ll try the uninstaller too and hopefully we will get an update for this ASAP because the risk is unbelevable, and we are aware.

 

 

Thanks again.
