Java JDK will not install on Windows 7

    Question

  • I am a student in a Java programming class. I need to install JDK on my laptop running Win7RC. I get a warning message that it is incompatible. If I continue, the installation backs out & does not install.

  • FYI for others with this issue. I went back to Java & downloaded the beta version7 of the JDK. (I had been trying to install the version6 JDK.) The beta ver 7 loaded fine. When I run my IDE the programs compile & run, so I guess I got where I want to be. Thanks for the responses

  • I'm taking a java programming class also. I just installed jdk 6 after a few tries on windows 7(RTM). It worked after I enabled the windows service to be installed for the application server.
