Change JRE

Hi,

The program I'm writing needs to run using an older JRE installed on the client's machine. Is there some way to have Java use the older JRE without uninstalling the newer ones? Thanks.

Yes. You can change the system PATH variable to point to the older version if you want everything on the machine to use the older JRE. If you just want one program to, you can use the full path when running the Java command.
