yesterday I installed jdk 1.6u14 manually and uninstalled jdk1.6u13, I did this because it is not yet available via auto update but now my java installation is messed up, Netbeans programs no longer compile, widgetfx shows error during startup - and webstart seems to stopped working, also firefox crashed whenever a page with an embedded java applet starts, here is my deployment.properties file

the file is located here

Try reinstalling update 14 again. It's quite possible that update 14 had overwritten some files of update 13 (like the entire C:\Program Files\Java\jre6 folder). When you uninstalled update 13, it took along some of the update 14 files.

When upgrading manually, the rule of thumb is:
1) backup any configuration files in the program folder (optional)
2) uninstall the old version first
3) install the new version next
4) synchronize configuration files with your backup (optional)
