Currently Being ModeratedOct 3, 2008 11:32 AM (in response to Glenn Kelly1)Hi Glenn, have a look in your Utilities folder>Java, for Java Preferences app, I haven't got release 7, but it lets me choose which version of Java to use... reboot likely needed after a change though.

I have performed an Archive and install. Many thanks:
Performing an Archive and install will only overwrite the operating system and retains all user files and applications.
Upon reinstall, you will need to manually install the Java updates using Software Update.
You will need to install Java 4, 5 and 6 in sequence
Then download the other updates for the Mac OS to take it to 10.4.11 but ignore the Java 7 update.
