Question Java Script thing

sponsored links

 
Well I'm the computer administrator on my computer. I seem to have this Java script thing on my account but I noticed that on the other accounts on this computer do not have it. On the other accounts you cant see certain things on web pages and says you need to download the latest version of Java Script or Java 7 but when I go to the website to download it, it says it that once i see the video it means i have it now, but the websites keep telling me i don't have it. So I download it again then restart my computer and the accounts still don't get it. What is wrong???

For your information, Java and Java Script are two different things.

What you're talking about is Java, and there are two types, Sun Java and Micro$$oft Virtual Machine.

Generally, when you install software on a system with multiple accounts, it will give a selection of installing it just for you, or for all users on the machine.


Also, which browser are you using, and do you know what settings are you using?

no, it never asked whether i wanted to install it on my account or all. when you say browser and settings what are you talking about? As you can tell I'm not an expert or pro on these type of things, i'm still kinda learning them.

I understand you're not an expert (neither am I ), but I need certain basic information in order to try to help you.

It's very hard without having the PC in front of me, so I need as much relevant info as possible.

Which Java did you install, was it Sun? (And what is the computer doing wrong exactly?)


Sun Java adds an applet in Control Panel (named Java).

You can double click the Java icon, then in the Advanced tab, click Default Java for Browsers.

You should have whatever browser/s you're using checked for Java to be active.

To check the Browser, it's under Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, then depending on your version or browser, Java. (For Internet Explorer)

Well, since my bro likes to play flashgames, or watch some flash animations it limits him to what he can watch. It will tell him to download java because it is not installed or not active. So i download it and it still is having the same problem. I tried downloading it on the administrator account (mine) and still nothing. And i installed Java 9.

You've confused me. Flash requires Adobe Flash Player, not Java.

It's the same setup as Java, and the site will tell you if it's installed properly.


Anyway, can you post a link of a page you're having problems with, so I can check what the format is?
