The installer in the Java 6uN on Windows should uninstall the old Java runtime and install the new one. Instead it's prompting the user to remove it from Add/Remove programs which is not very user friendly.
I installed the JRE
Could you please provide me steps in reproducing the issue? I tried to upgrade the JRE from 6uNb04 to 6uNb06. When installing b06, a YES_NO dialog shows and asks me if I want to reinstall the software. If I choose yes, it will remove b04 and install b06.
Are you installing JDK or JRE? What are the orders of your install? Please provide build number also when mentioning 6uN-ea.
I was updating from 6u05 to 6u06 and I got no dialog. I also had 6u3 installed.
