Java 1.6 and 1.7 plugins compatibility with Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition

    Question

  • Hi,

    I recently installed a Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition.

    From this server, I need to access several GUIs using  IE or Firefox, and these GUIs require the java plugin to be correctly installed.

    So I installed java via the java website (online method). When the installation is completed (even after reboot), it seems that the java plugin is not correctly installed as I cannot display correctly the java test page.

    I can run java applications when they are not embedded in IE/Firefox.

    In the java control panel :

       - all java settings are set to the minimum security level

       - the java content is enabled in the browser.

    Did any one manage to install java plugin and to display the java test page from a Windows Server 2012 R2 ?

    If it's possible, is there any trick to make it work properly ? Or am I simply dumb ?

    Cheers.

  • Thanks for your replies.
    Finally, I found a solution.
    So far, I was installing java 64 bits, as windows is 64bits as well.
    At the end, I tried to install java 32bits, and it worked :)

  • 1. Java 7 is compatible with WS2012 family https://www.java.com/en/download/help/sysreq.xml

    2. I have not found similar info for Java 6.

    3. I would ask this question in Oracle forum(s) https://community.oracle.com/community/developer/english Chances are that there is something specific.

    4. Look into Event logs for errors and warnings that point to Java.

  • I install Java regularly on my Windows Server installations, and other that the regular problems with Java itself, I have not had any issue with running Java plug-ins.  Install Windows Server.  Install Java.  It works.

    Are your servers members of a domain?  Are there group policies that could be getting in the way?
