Java Question

Installing NetBeans 6.7.1 with JDK 1.6

I need to install JDK 1.6.14 in order to install NetBeans 6.7.1.

I uninstalled from control panel JDK 1.8.77 but in cmd for "java -version" i have always 1.8.0.77

How can I uninstall all the version of Java (Control Panel is not enough) or how i can install NetBeans 6.7.1?

I tried with ' netbeans-6.7.1-ml-java-windows.exe --javahome "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_14" ' in cmd but doesn't work

Answer

If you are getting Java version as 8 even after uninstalling JDK 8 and installing JDK 6 you need to disable the java.exe file of Java 8 version. In order to do that follow the below steps.

  1. Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\ directory and find out java.exe
  2. Rename that java.exe file to java_rename.exe
  3. Then install JDK 6 and set the JDK path in Environment Variables. (if it's already installed it's OK).
  4. Restart your computer to take effect path settings.
  5. Now open terminal/command prompt and type java -version. This command will show you Java version as 6.

Hope this will be helpful for you.
