Title: JavaRuntime (JRE) with Chrome
Post by: crofty59 on August 04, 2012, 12:27:22 PM
I downloaded and installed Chrome version 20.0.1180.60 2 days ago.
When i run a test to see what version of java i have installed at this site
http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp (http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp)

First of i get warning to update Plugin See attachment
But when i Run This time i am told java up to date. See Atachment

Any way i decide to update and when i downloaded it and went to install was told already up to date, would i like to install anyway i did. To my surprise after java version 7 update 5 was installed.
It then went and installed Java FX version 2.1.1.

Then tested chrome no warnings, but i uninstalled Java FX warnings again.

No problems with IE8 or Firefox 14.02.

Just curious if anyone else have had this, as i am thinking of uninstalling Chrome

I certainly haven't noticed this (but I don't use Chrome, but firefox).

The question you have to ask yourself, is do you need JAVA at all ?
It isn't essential (like javascript) and is only required if you visit sites that have JAVA applets, you should probably see a notice to allow JAVA to run and the JAVA icon in the system tray.

I take it you have checked the obvious, is the plugin enabled in Chrome ?

I have JAVA 7 Update 5 installed and no Java FX version in windows add remove programs.

Yes it is,  i even retried again earlier by clicking update plugin, but same results as before.
Installed  version 7 update 5, then installs Java FX.

Try downloading this off-line installer from MajorGeeks, http://majorgeeks.com/Sun_Java_Runtime_Environment_d7567.html (http://majorgeeks.com/Sun_Java_Runtime_Environment_d7567.html), then uninstall the existing JAVA installation, reboot and install the one you downloaded.

I can't remember if there were any other option in the installation of it, but you should watch the installation like a hawk for any additional pre-checked options.

Downloading now, will give it a try and if that dosn't work i will uninstall chrome.
Will post back how it went.

Downloaded java rebooted, still made no difference with chrome, is still wanting to update, but have got latest version of java.
No java Fx either, which is good. But trying the update plugin in chrome browser is a different story.

I will definitely  be uninstalling Chrome.
Just one question with google updater, as this is not listed in add remove, can  this be stopped from removing this in schedule tasks.

Edit I have now uninstalled Chrome, and google updater was removed from scheduled tasks.

Thanks  DavidR for your assistance and also to you bob3160.

I have also updated JRE to version 7 update 6
No more warnings about an outdated java plugin.

All is well now ;)
