    New Java jdk-8u112-windows-x64 will not install


    I am running Windows 10 build 14942. The latest critical Java update will not install on any of 3 machines. It asks for permission to make changes, and nothing happens. On one (of 3) machines, it says it is protecting me from bad things, I say install anyhow, and after I give permission, nothing happens again. I tried it as administrator with the same results.

    I installed the 64 bit java update today with no problems. Did you try turning off any antivirus/antimalware software temporarily, and then install it? Another option would be to uninstall both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Java first, reboot, then try to install the new ones.

    Are you using the Offline install? What third party security software are you running? Have you checked with Oracle's bug report system to see if anyone else is reporting issues with this version. There are issues with 101 with Windows 10. System Dashboard - Java Bug System

    I uninstalled BitDefender, but have never had a problem before. I think this is due to the new windows thing that pops up and says the software is dangerous. I only get the security pop-up on one system. Uninstalling the JDK and JRE does not change things.
    It will not install on 3 different systems.

    Do you need the Development kit(JDK) or the Runtime environment(JRE)?
    JRE: Java Runtime Environment. It is basically the Java Virtual Machine where your Java programs run on. It also includes browser plugins for Applet execution.
    JDK: It's the full featured Software Development Kit for Java, including JRE, and the compilers and tools (like JavaDoc, and Java Debugger) to create and compile programs.
    Usually, when you only care about running Java programs on your browser or computer you will only install JRE. It's all you need. On the other hand, if you are planning to do some Java programming, you will also need JDK.
    Sometimes, even though you are not planning to do any Java Development on a computer, you still need the JDK installed. For example, if you are deploying a WebApp with JSP, you are technically just running Java Programs inside the application server. Why would you need JDK then? Because application server will convert JSP into Servlets and use JDK to compile the servlets. I am sure there might be more examples.

    I am a Java developer and need the jdk. As I indicated. There is a new Windows Fast Track update today. Hopefully this will be fixed...

    Ok, I asked, because, as you probably know, many confuse the two.

    You did try from here?: Java SE Development Kit 8 - Downloads
