I tried this, restarted Apache, and the error remained. I added 127.0.0.1 hostname at the end with no difference.

comment Does anyone have a copy of Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Update for Java 7.0.40.22 32-bit
I didn't have the latest version of Java. The control panel applet was mistaken. I downloaded & installed latest version of Java, ran Belarc Advisor again, and the patch was no longer missing.

Java control panel applet says I have the latest Java version, yet Belarc Advisor advises me I am missing the patch. Weird.

Are they not listed in Device Manager? Right-click My Computer, and choose Manage, then you can see Device Manager.

comment Check which com port my device uses?
Does a USB port use a COM port? I didn't think it did. A COM port is used by Serial ports.
