java not working in windows 8 (Solved)

Hi friends, well lately i signed up for anymeeting.com for organizing online meeting that’s when i came across this problem Chrome showed java is not installed in your PC. But i had installed java before so i reinstalled it but again the same message was there.

Solution:

  • Install latest version of JDK
  • Latest version of JRE
  • Notice that if you are running 32 bit browser then you must have x86 bit Java installed. So all those using x64 bit OS must install x86 bit JRE if they are using 32 bit browser as in my case this was the problem.
  • Both x64 and x86 JAVA can be installed simultaneously. So better install both! (i have both installed)
  • Now, Add the path of java compiler to the environment variable as shown below:
  1. Open Advance System Settings > Environment Variables> System Variables.
  2. Click New(if it doesn’t exist else Edit) : CLASSPATH (variable name), %JAVA_HOME%\jre\lib; (variable value),
  3. Click New : JAVA_HOME (name), C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0 (value).
  4. Click Edit in Path: in value add: %JAVA_HOME%\bin;
  5. Save and exit.

Note ‘ ; ‘ separates one path with other just like ‘ . ‘ denotes the end of a line.’

Hope this solves your problem. Enjoy java in windows 8.

  1. Java Verify failure unable to Configure Java Control Panel does not open ( Fix : )
    this is a regular ( windows 7 bug related ) problem after successful installation of Java ( jre ) and fresh installation of Windows7 64bit or 32bit on my laptop or desktop. what worked perfectly for me was setting COMPATIBILITYMODE=WINDOWSNT to make windows launch the JP2LAUNCHER.EXE and JAVAW.EXE files properly.
    jp2launcher.exe windowsNT compatibility solves Java Verify failure problem at https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
    javaw.exe windowsNT compatibility solves unable to open or Configure Java Control Panel problem.

    * search for JAVAW.EXE inside c:\program files\java\….\bin
    or c:\program files(x86)\java\…..\bin\
    * right-click mouse on JAVAW application icon logo
    * click PROPERTIES
    * click COMPATIBILITY
    * tick the checkbox at COMPATIBILITY MODE
    * choose WINDOWS NT service pack
    * click APPLY or click OK
    Now, the Configure Java Control Panel will start opening and working.

    * search for JP2LAUNCHER.EXE inside c:\program files\java\….\bin
    or c:\program files(x86)\java\…..\bin\
    * right-click mouse on JP2LAUNCHER
    * click PROPERTIES
    * click COMPATIBILITY
    * tick the checkbox at COMPATIBILITY MODE
    * choose WINDOWS NT service pack
    * click APPLY or click OK
    Now, the Verify Java will be successful at https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

    if we find 2 or 3 versions of JP2LAUNCHER and JAVAW when we search, then we must repeat the above for all of them.

    in the Configure Java Control Panel Advanced tab we can set “Do not check” certificate revocation and disable security verification. and in the Security tab we may Edit Site List… for the Exception Site List ( add URLs to unblock sites )
