sun Java JRE direct download for Windows

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/05/17


20110904: Not sure why this MSI file does not work any more, but the comment below is correct: the downloaded MSI fails.
I’ve left the text below as is, just in case someone figures out why it fails.


Got the direct download from the error dialog because the network connection got interrupted:

Error – Java(TM) Installer
Download Cancelled by User: from=, to=C:\Users\user\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\jre1.6.0_20\jre1.6.0_20-c-l.msi

Always convenient having a direct download URL :-)

Duplicate Shortcuts IE8 configuration dialog – Alt-N binds to “No” and “Next”. Are UI designers ever going to learn to be nice to keyboard users?

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/05/17

Duplicate Alt-N shortcut: No / NextFor every (re)install, IE8 is usually part of the installation.
So, for the upteenth time, I came across the dialog on the right.
This time Alt-N is bound to both the “No” choice as well as the “Next” button.

–jeroen; wishing UI designers would learn to pay more attention to keyboard users…
