Specs: Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit, 12 GB
I just upgraded java to version 8 updated 25 from java.com at work on a network desktop computer.
I tried to detect Java on the same Java.com using 3 different browsers : Internet Explorer 64 bits, Internet Explorer 32 bits and Google Chrome and none of them worked.

Go into Control Panel. Click on Java and then click About.

That will show you the installed version

Not sure if what I give will help. Go to the java address I give and click on ---- do I have java -- It will scan and let you know. http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp

✔ Best Answer
Version 8 Update 25 is a developers edition (as also linked to in #2):
https://www.java.com/en/download/fa...

The current version is 7 Update 71. Unless you have some special need then you should uninstall Version 8 Update 25 and install Version 7 Update 71 instead.

Whatever, the version check is here:

If you really need to continue with Version 8 Update 25 then about all I can suggest is that you uninstall Java completely and try installing it afresh.


Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
