Hi all,
I had jdk 1.3 installed in my system. Some software needed jdk 1.4, but after installing jdk 1.4 the system still reports java version as jdk 1.3. Any suggestions/ work arounds?

Hi Shobana,
Did you install the new version in a different folder than the old one? In this case, maybe there's some kind of setting that tells the software where to find the Java home directory/folder. You should change that to the new folder.

Hi Hendarsjah,
I installed jdk 1.4 in a new folder and also changed the path environment variable to point to the new folder. When I run java -version on the command prompt it still shows 1.3
Thanks
Shobana

Make sure the PATH variable does not include the old installation directory at all. You might also need to reboot your computer.

Hi Daniel,
All traces of jdk 1.3 in path and classpath environment variables have been removed , but it still shows version 1.3. While uninstalling using the provided uninstaller, it has removed all directories except lib. Any suggestions?

Thanks ,
Shobana
