On start-up Studio 2011 tells me my Java is outdated. I have now 1.7.0_25. Do you think I should do as told?

Update to version 40, not 45 Nov 18, 2013


The last guaranteed version to work is update 40.

Version 45 causes problems in some computers so use version 40 if you want to update Java.

You can get it from here:

Don't think so... Nov 18, 2013

If I where you I wouldn't update Java. They are always changing their security settings and cause many crashes and misfunctionings in many programs. The version that is shipped with Studio and that works with no problems is Java 7 Update 25. I would use that version and not let it update until SDL says differently...

Any progress on fixing Java issues? Nov 19, 2013

More for the SDL side here, Paul?
Any progress on fixing the Java issue with MultiTerm as I really need to update to the latest Java as it is now interfering with one of my supplier's websites.
I really want to keep MulitTerm working, but it is no good to me if I can't actually download my work from my supplier's site!

One golden rule when using a pc: Never upgrade Java until you absolutely have to.
