< rant > For ten years I've had a particular program that has only been released in a version to run on Java 6. That's spanned multiple incarnations of Windows, culminating in Win 10. The developers still don't seem to realize what a giant PITA barrier-to-entry Java is. It's ten years later, Java is suppsood to be ten years more mature, and here I am spennig my evening trying to get the thing working instead of actually running my program. I hate it I hate it I hate it. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it twice now. It TELLS me it's installed successfully. My program doesn't run. Java has nothing to say about this. Gonna give up in disgust. Demand my money back for my program. Wake up Oracle - this is the 21st century. Some of your users are not IT techs and hackers. < /rant > It is just a rant because I can't even ask for help! What would I ask? Why is my program not launching? Useless question.
