I just bought a laptop that runs Windows 8. I am trying to get Java and Quicktime to run. Both are updated to the most recent version but I still get an error message. I have read that you have to install 32 and 64 java for it to run but I can not seem to figure that out. It will only let me over ride the version that is installed. Please help. I need these programs to work for my online classes.

Ther shouldnt be any problem with java installing in windows 8. What kind of error is poping up ? – Anvesh Vejandla Nov 18 '12 at 20:19
What's your browser? Desktop IE by default will ask if you want to enable any new plugins (including Java). Metro IE won't support any plugin (except Flash for selected websites). Try Firefox/Chrome/Opera/whatever else in – Martheen Cahya Paulo Nov 19 '12 at 3:55
