Newest Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and Java, too!

Recommended Posts

Thank you so much Stephen, that's great! :thumbup

I wasn't aware that there was an update 152, it was never offered by the updater, perhaps it was considered to be too minor an update on 151.

I downloaded your file, and will probably now uninstall 151 and install 152 from scratch, and hope we get a working updater for 161 at some point.

:)

I submitted a bug submit to Oracle today. I'll be interested to see what their response is.

While Oracle does not "officially" support XP on Java 8, I'm hoping that they'll be motivated to fix it. It seems to me that this is likely a minor compatibility issue, since all previous versions of the JRE 8 run and install correctly.

I doubt they would want people running outdated versions of their software because of an error they made with the software. If they don't care, then that is at least an ethical issue they need to make a decision about.

Here is the report I submitted, with the field headers redacted:

You didn't mention it but 162 is out, too, and is likewise broken.

It is true, but not really a problem (for me at this point).

Workaround:

Extract all files from "jre-8u161-windows-i586.tar.gz" and copy them in the folder where the previous version is installed (previous build "u151", you can delete all old files / folders before copying). All works, also the system control extension.

Default folder is "c:\programs\java\jre1.8.0_151"

I changed this to "c:\programs\java" in an earlier installation that runs, but dosn't matter, I think.

Works for me without error (I use no java WEB-extension, only stand alone Java programs)

Here ist an step by step workaround >CLICK<

WARNING TO ADOBE FLASH USERS IN CHINA

For Adobe Flash (plugin/standalone player) users, if you need taking your computer to China(PRC), you will be asked to install a Chinese customized version of Flash Player(by detecting with China IP when you browse internet), which has a "Flash Helper Service" installed, and that service is done by Chinese company for collecting user data to Chinese Government/Police.

So if you need to bring your computer to China(PRC), it is better to keep it in version 29. (PepperFlash from Google Chrome official builds are also affected.)

For Flash plugin comes from Windows Update (for IE/Edge use) is not affected.
