Now you may not be able to check at java.com to see if the installation went correctly.
Oracle has a warning now when you use Fx to check.
Java Panel "About" claims I have an older version of Java 7. ???
Opera 12.13 hangs on the Java check page.
IE 10 reports successful installation of 32bit version but Microsoft says I should also install the 64bit update and that will break Java on IE 10 (at least it did for the last two updates). Microsoft says IE 10 desktop version on Win 8 is MOSTLY 64bit but not fully (whatever the heck that means) so you must install both versions of Java. That gives me a Java Panel with no way to auto check for new versions. The installations have to be done off line.
Plus, while java.com reports successful installation of the latest 32bit version on IE 10, and Win Patrol asked me about allowing it, IE 10 itself reports that I have an OLD version 7 from Jan 1 2013 when I look at IE Addons. I haven't tried to install the 64bit version yet.
I would just uninstall Java from IE but that can't be done fully.--
