Java – Version 7 Update 25 upgrade issues

There has been a recent flurry of updates released by Oracle for their Java platform – the most recent one as of today’s date ( 20/06/2013 ) is Version 7 Update 25.

We began rolling Version 7 Update 25 update out yesterday and noticed a few glitches during install – the most obvious being the older versions of Java are not removed correctly.  This can and will cause issues with sites that require Java.

The easiest workaround is to remove the older versions of Java via Programs and Features – just make sure not to remove the latest version of Java during the process!
