Hi! I am running Windows 98 SE and need to install the latest Java2 SDK. Now, the file is 116 MB and I am on a dial-up connection. When I download the Sun Download Manager, I get the message "Bad Command Or File Name". Are there any other download managers I can use on the java.sun website, cos most of them don't work. Thanks!
Welcome to JavaRanch, Amil! The latest J2SE SDK (1.4.2_03 I believe) is about 49BM, not 116MB. It's available at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html Note that you can click to download just the J2SE SDK or the J2SE SDK cobundled with NetBeans IDE from this page. I just tested the download of the J2SE SDK with Flashget, a download manager, and it worked. [ February 27, 2004: Message edited by: Dirk Schreckmann ]
