I have both Java 32-bit and Java 64-bit installed on my computer, and when automatic updates rolls around it asks me to save in Program Files (x86), but no equivalent for 64-bit Java comes up. How can I get 64-bit Java to update as well as 32-bit Java?
From the What is Java Auto Update? How do I change notify settings? article:
Guess you'll have to do it manually. Given the sheer number of security issues with Java of late, not having auto-update support x64 is a real head-scratcher.
