Good afternoon all,

I've got both the 32-bit jre7 and 64-bit jre7 installed.

In the control panel of the 32-bit jre7 (C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javacpl.exe), there is an "Update" tab where I can configure the updates for the 32-bit jre7:

However I can't seem to find any way to configure updates for the 64-bit jre7, since the control panel for the 64-bit jre7 (C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\javacpl.exe) does not have an "Updates" tab:

Similar question but has no answers: Java Control Panel does not show Update tab on Windows 7 x64

Auto update is not supported for 64-bit Java yet (bug track). You can track the updates from RSS channel of Java SE News and download installation package manually.

  • Any idea roughly when will it be out?

  • Has that bug been there since 2006?!? Do the decision-makers at Oracle sleep at night knowing that they foist this crap on the world? Feb 18, 2013 at 21:26
