Hello,
Are you trying to "uninstall" it or just doing a delete on the file system.
Since a JDK doesn't really install much you can just delete it on the file system.
Hope this helps

No problemo
Installing a fresh JDK will make that the active one.

And welcome to the Ranch

You can inactivate an old JDK by taking it out of your PATH.

Hi,

I would suggest actually using the windows uninstall in the control center and not just deleting the folder.I did the same thing and had lots of problems after that.
When you just delete the folder you still have things hanging out in the registry from the old version and that can cause problems with installing and
using the newer version!
I hope everything worked OK for you but just my lil piece of advice;)

Mike

Well indeed, the Windows uninstall is always better
But from the first post i got the impression that this was not functioning anymore.
My proposal was meant for "when everything else fails"
