If you are using a program that requires java, it is important to verify your java version to avoid any compatibility issues. Click on the verify and test link to continue.
Please note that a security prompt may appear. If it does, click Run to allow the verification process to continue.
Depending on your system settings, you may need to respond to prompts to allow the verification to continue. If you have installed Java and there is an error with the verification, there could be a configuration issue (eg. browser, Java control panel, security settings).
Furthermore, the Google Chrome browser does not support NPAPI plug-ins (after version 42) and therefore will not run all Java content. It is recommended that you switch to one of the many free Internet browsers (Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari on Mac) to run the Java plug-in.
