Hello,

I require to download Java TM SE6 U26 6.0.260.3 plugin.

Could you inform me of an appropriate site?

The Sun website only appears to allow the latest plugin to be downloaded.

Thank you,
S

Java 6 releases can be downloaded on Oracle's website. I think that nowadays you'll have to create an account if you want to download older Java versions; Oracle wants to discourage people using old versions. (You should only use an older version if you have a good reason to do so).

If you only need it to run Java programs (you don't need the Java compiler and other tools), then download JRE 6u26.

Hello,

Thank you for your reply.

I require to install the Java TM SE6 U26 6.0.260.3 browser plugin for Firefox and Chrome,
in order to run an applet, written in an earlier version of java. There are compatibility
issues running the applet using the latest Java TM plugins and I'm not able to update the applet.

I'm not sure of a secure site from where I can download this from?

I do have the plugin installed on another computer - I don't know if it's possible to copy and
install that on to the required host.

kind regards,
S

No, it's not possible to copy & paste the plug-in from another computer.

Download JRE version 6u26 from Oracle's website and run the installer. It will install Java 6 update 26, including the browser plug-in.

Note: Java is a product from Oracle. The download on Oracle's website is the official place to get Java from.

Thank you for your answers.

I do have a final question:

The required Java runtime is already installed on the computer, but the browser plug in is not appearing as an option
to enable.

There is a later version of the plug-in installed/enabled however - event though there doesn't appear to be a later
version of the java runtime.

Would you know of a way of getting the correct java plug-in to appear in the list to enable.



Kind regards,
S

You can't have a Java plug-in without a Java runtime environment. So, you must have a JRE installed somewhere for the plugin that you already have.

If this is a Windows machine, go to Control Panel, to the list of installed software, and de-install any Java runtime environments you don't need. Then install JRE 6u26.
