There are a couple of programs I use that require Java.


I have both version 7 and version 8 installed....dunno why.


Java is disabled on my browsers.


Do I need version 8?


The programs seem to complain about version 8.


Is version 8 aimed at win8 users. I use Win 7x64.


I am thinking of un-installling Java 8v11x64.


What do you think...

Hello Pat, The complaint is an error message that says:




You are using the wrong Java version. Use an original Sun Java. Start the program anyway? Your Version: Runtime Version 1.8.0_11-b12



It all works OK. It's just the tiresome error message at launch.

I would update to the latest JRE version 8u20, then ask the company that develops these programs about the message. "Sun Java" has been a long time ago, it is now "Oracle Java" since a number of years.
