Yesterday I noticed a weird problem. I'm running Windows Vista x64, and for testing purposes I have installed both 6u12 (Windows x64) and 6u12 (Windows x86). I could update the x86 to 6u13 using the "Update" tab in Java Control Panel.
This means, that I now have 6u13 x86 and 6u12 x64 installed. Now I tried updating the x64 to 6u13 by choosing "Update" in the Java Control Panel for the x64 plugin. But something is wrong here - when I did this, Java Update downloaded 6u13 - but the x86 version - ???
I can of course update the x64 plugin manually - but something seems to be broken in the automatic update - at least if you for debugging purposes have them both installed in an x64 OS. Is this a known issue?
Thanks in advance,
