Which Java version do I need 32 or 64 Bit or both?


I went to the Java website and I was going to download the Java update. A message on the page said this:

We have detected you may be viewing this page in a 32-bit browser. If you use 32-bit and 64-bit browsers interchangeably, you will need to install both 32-bit and 64-bit Java in order to have the Java plug-in for both browsers.

Do I need both versions? Can I assume that since Computer says I have a 64 bit operating system, I need only the 64 bit version of Java. How do I know if I have I.E. in a 32 and 64 bit version?

Your question has been answered on Java page:
Quote:

If you have 64-bit Windows, you have two IE versions, 32-bit and 64-bit.

Internet Explorer
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Internet Explorer (64-bit)
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

The first one runs IE from the "Program Files (x86)" folder, this is the 32-bit version. The second one is the 64-bit version.

You'll find a shortcut to the 64 bit version in your start menu. Click start>all programs and look at the shortcuts that aren't in any of the folders. The ones at the top. If you have a 64 bit operating system, you'll find two shortcuts to IE there. The 64 bit one is labeled "Internet Explorer (64 bit) ". If you don't use that shortcut to start IE, chances are you haven't been using the 64 bit version. I'd be willing to bet you have been using the 32 bit version. I use Firefox mostly but when I do use IE, I usually use the 32 bit IE. Tend to run into things on the net that don't work in the 64 bit version. Whatever the case, it can't hurt to install both (assuming you have a 64 bit windows version). If in doubt, install them both. On the other hand, if you just install the 32 bit version, IE will probably let you know, if you are indeed using the 64 bit version.

Thank you for the information. Does it matter what order you install them Broni?

Zander I see both the 64 and the 32 bit I.E. and from Rclick the quick launch I.E. icon I'm certain that I have been using the 32 bit.

I installed the latest version in 32 and 64 bit without a hitch. It installed the scheduler for updates but I do not see anywhere in the Java applet to change update to never (I prefer doing it myself). Can you tell me where the update options are in this latest version?

The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications. If you don't want to run another extra service, go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter. Click OK and restart your computer.

Java quick starter is unchecked already. Can I just disable or remove the scheduler service (I use Winpatrol).
