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.
