I'm close to shooting myself in the face here. I need help from the professionals!

So I reformated Vista 64 a few days ago, a day after I needed java, and installed JRE 6 updt 12. It installed and it went fine, but it wont load any Java Runtime applications anywhere. And I need it for my netbank!

I tried reformating twice with 2 different vista DVDs.And Im down to none now.Ive tried the x64, reinstalling, tried both, tried x86, and so on and so on. Where java is supposed to be loaded in FF its just a square with nothing in it. In IE it loads java, but I cant use it.

So I tried google chrome. Where I get the message "This applications has failed to start because NSVCR71.dll was not found". Ive tried pasting this .dll into SysWOW64 and system32, and nothing works.

Im getting furious, somebody help me please :/ It worked fine before I formated.

Well, this is a 'java performance' forum, but this is not a java performance
question. I'm not surprised that you are getting blank stares. ;-)

Seriously - no clue; sounds like a windows vista problem to me - or possibly
a virus or virus scanner issue to me.

Sorry!

Wrong forum - but sound like an issue with the Java web browser plugin. A quick [url=http://www.kylejorgensen.com/2009/02/java-plugin-in-firefox-and-vista-64-bit.html]search[/url] suggest disabling the new plugin and using the old one from the Java control panel.

Sorry, but this forum is so weird build up, I had no idea of where to put it. And with a support fee of atleast 0.50 dollars, this is where I went. Im telling ya, Ive about had it with Sun Microsystems. God. They're down on line with itunes and quicktime in shitty programming and marketing.

Anyways! The link was helpful, since he seems to have the same problem - BUT, I cant disable the next-generation java plugin. Its just gray. Cant uncheck it. ARGH

:(

These fora are for hard core topics not covered well elsewhere.
If you are looking for something I suggest you use a search engine like http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=java+install+forum

I suggest you ask for you money back. Every cent you have ever paid for Java just to make a point.

I cannot say I have had an install problem with any of these products in ten years. But have never used Vista. ;)

Why don't you uninstall it. If it doesn't work get it off your system. I would also get rid of any other copies you might have as well, just to be sure.
Only then, if you need it, install a full downloaded copy from scratch.

BTW: I usually find if Java has a problem I need to do a windows update and the problem goes away. I would do that too before any re-install.

Luckily I havnt paid anything, thats why I come to you guys :)

I HAVE tried uninstalling it, and reinstalling, tried old versions, 64 bit versions and even formatting the pc several times. I run Vista 64 (Its a good OS, for those with the power, and knowlegde, it never crashes), and didnt have a problem with java on this os before. But now its just .. defect >_<

Siiigh :(

I assume you have tried Java 6u12. It is the first version to support 64-bit windows so a few bugs is not surprising, perhaps 6u14 will be better. :/
