    Default Installing Java 1.7 on Windows NT

    I understand Java 1.7 is not supported on Windows NT. So I need to find a way around it so i use its features and functions.

    Currently my NT is running Java 1.4. I need to install a proprietary software on Windows NT that requires Java 1.7.

    When I run an Java 1.7 installer on a command prompt, it returns with a message "Access is Denied". My user has Full Control Permission and Ownership of the installer.

    I tried to copy a installed copy of Java 1.7 from XP to NT. When i ran Java -version, I still get "Access is Denied".

    I don't have this problem when I run Java 1.4 installer. The Java 1.4 installer runs just fine.

    Is there a way around to install Java 1.7 on Windows NT? Any help will greatly be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    C'mon, what version of Windows are you really using? Use the version name and number of your OS that MS used when it was installed on your computer.

    Okay. I had trouble believing you were using an OS releasted in 1996 AND that you were trying to use modern applications with it. I regret I have no advice for you other than to install the 1.7 files without the use of the installer, but I don't know the source of the incompatibility so don't know if that will work.

    Is there an NT forum or user's group you can ask for help?

    Good luck!

    I tried to install the 1.7 files without the use of the installer, that did not work. I get "Access is Denied" when I ran Java -version. I have Full Control permission on the Java dir.

    I will check on NT forum. Thank you.

    As a side note - it might be worth Googling what versions of Java
    Windows NT can actually run. Being fairly old now, most of Sun's
    updates are going to be post 1996. And even then, their oldest
    version still may not be compatible.

    The last Java version supported by NT seems to be 1.5. I knew that. I was trying to figure out if there is a way to hack into installer or a some way to install it.

    Have you considered emailing Oracle about any information they can give you?
    "Hacking" the install application is not something you really want to do - and if
    anything should be a last (very last) resort.

    If Java 1.5 is supported on Windows NT there must be someway to install the JRE/JVM.
    Oracle have full control over the Java standard now, and unless they reconfigured it
    when they bought the rights from Sun, helping you to get it setup in your chosen
    environment is their priority.
