I am trying to install a Java development environment on Windows 7 64-bit, but I am unable to find a suitable install. Is there one available?

  • Then depending on the SDK you have, for instance mine is: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_26\bin\java.exe

The latest Java Development Kit is available at this address. Make sure to select "Windows x64" when asked for the operating system.

    I've tried to keep on top of updating answers but I really haven't got the time any more. I leave it up to people to look at the date the answer was posted and put 2 and 2 together.

  • Appears you can get 64 bit JRE (just JRE) there as well. Thanks!

  • Re image: The next to last line, Windows X86 (79.48MB), is that the Windows 32 bit version? x86 = 32 bit x64 = 64 bit. Is that a fair assessment?

Java SE Downloads page

Choose the appropriate JDK package you want and select Windows x64 on the subsequent page.
