Evening all , I've been trying all day to download Version 5.0 update6 from java.com - when I try the online install it fails as it's unable to download a file .
The offline installation simply doesn't work - should be about 16 meg - downloads about 16k and the file isn't recognised as being a windows file .
This has happened on both a Win98se and Win 2000 Pro computer .
Perhaps a problem at Sun's end ?
Any info appreciated ,
Mike

Looks like it might be a prob with Sun.

It only downloads 15k when I try the offline install. This is using Opera.

From here (http://java.com:80/en/download/manual.jsp)

I have the latest version on the hdd tho. I've used Opera before to download it, and it downloaded the full 16mb.

I've sent Sun an email, to let them know that the offline install is only 15k not 16mb!

Get it from here, at the bottom of the page, fourth entry from the bottom, in Other Updates, Sun Java Virtual Machine 5 Update 6 (Standalone package):

Thanks for the feedback and link :thumbs:
Yep would appear there's a problem at Sun's end
Thanks for the alternative download site
