How to Install Java/JDK on your windows machine

Dear Friends,

Let  us see how we can install Java on a windows machine.I am taking here an example of 32 bit Windows 7 machine and the version of Java that we are going to install here is 1.6

Step 1 : Go to Oracle site .I am pasting here the direct link from where Java6 exe can be downloaded.

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-downloads-javase6-419409.html#jdk-6u45-oth-JPR

Search for file name -> jdk-6u38-windows-i586.exe and download this file to your local drive.



 Step 2 : Double click on this file and following screen will open .Click on Yes.



Step 3 : An installation wizard will open as can be seen in below screenshot.Click on Next.


Step 4 : On the below screen,wizard is trying to install Java by default in C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_38 , but if you want to change the path ,you can change here by clicking on Change... button and giving path wherever you want to install Java/Jdk. Also as you can see there should be at least 300 MB of space available for installation ,so make sure you have necessary space available.If you are fine with path and size ,Click on Next.


Step 5 : It will take some time to copy files to required path and finally you will see following screen,where it will ask for installation of JRE. You can change path for JRE installation as well by clicking on Change... button and giving your path.Click on Next


Step 6: You will see following screens.Finally click on finish on second screenshot below



Step 7 : This is time to check whether installation has happened actually or not.Go to C:\Program Files\Java and you will see following.Both JDK and JRE have been installed.


Hope this would have helped you.Your suggestions,feedback ,any further questions are welcome.
