I have both Java 6 Update 31 (32-bit) and Java 7 Update 3 (64-bit) installed, as I do some Java development.
I have reinstalled everything, including Chrome, multiple times. Java works in Firefox (which uses the 32-bit Java installation, as does Chrome) so I know Java is installed fine.
In chrome://plugins/ the only thing relating to Java is "Java - Version: 10.3.1.255, NPRuntime Script Plug-in Library for Java(TM) Deploy" and it is enabled.
Maybe it's something to do with environment variables? Variables relating to Java:
- JAVA_HOME is set to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_03
- PATH is set to %JAVA_HOME%/bin
I'm just kinda out of ideas. It's annoying to have to open Firefox when I need to load a webpage with Java in it.
*I had to do some BlackBerry development (don't ask) which only works with 32-bit Java and Eclipse. However it didn't like it when I had 64-bit installed at the same time, so I had to uninstall everything to just install 32-bit. Then when I was done with BlackBerry I reinstall all the 64-bit stuff.
