    Default Java Control Panel

    Silly question here, but I just updated to the java version (7u51) and I am attempting to access the new Exception Site List feature. Unfortunately, my Java Control Panel insists on running on version 7u45. I guess the java updater doesn't change the computer's system version or something (god knows why not). Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this?

    This could be because new JDK is yet to be updated in PATH environment variable. Kindly check that and update if the update is installed successfully. As you said it could well be due to failure in java version update.

    I attempted to update the environment values manually because the update did not.

    The PATH variable contains a reference to:
    %JAVA_HOME%\bin

    The JAVA_HOME variable contains:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_51

    Other java-related variables I have are:
    CLASSPATH
    and
    QTJAVA

    Still no difference. The computer has been restarted since editing the variables.

    That site reports: Version 7 Update 51
    While "java -version" in the command prompt reports: Version 7 Update 45

    Running Windows7? Try 'where java' in the command prompt. 'which java' on linux.

    Yes, Windows 7.
    "where java" returned:
    C:\Windows\System32\java.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_51\bin\java.exe
    I assume the former takes precedence over the latter, and the former is running the old version? What would I do to fix this?

    Unfortunately 'which' isn't as intelligent as 'where' so I can't really say which takes precedence. It's an odd command and seems to behave a little like a search for environment variables but common sense would dictate that an older version of JRE is borking up your classpath. I'd almost guarantee you that C:\Windows\System32\java.exe -version would show you the old version and the source of your problems.

    If it were me I would completely uninstall Java and wipe clean all references in the environmental variables. Re-install, re-add the enviro vars and re-verify. Try and get as close to a clean slate as you can because something went wrong with the update.
