I have recently installed the same jre version (1.4.2_13) of Java on two servers. I let it create the default folder C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_13. I've changed my path environment variable on both to point to this directory. When I type java -version, one server says it's build 1.4.2_13-b06 and the other says it's build 1.4.2-b28. I expect the first one but I've no idea where this b-28 is coming from. What am I missing?
Any suggestions on where to look? I see a patchjre file that refers to the b28 build but it's on all four servers. Only two of the servers have the issue.

Puzzling. Well, as a "sanity check" you could search your hard drive for "java.exe". If you right-click on each version in Explorer, click Properties, select the Version tab and then select "Full Version", you can check the exact version number of the executable.
Or you could just execute
<path to particular instance>\java.exe -version
for each java.exe you find.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
