Hi
Has anyone installed JDK 1.5 on windows XP 64 bit Intel machine?
I see a download for AMD but not for Intel, i tried to download and install AMD installer and it did not work, gives error System cannot open device or file specified

I get the same error if i try to install 32 bit jdk 1.5 installer,
Any ideas?

Why do you still need JDK 1.5? Java 6 has been out for quite a long time, and there's even Java 7 now.

I know we java 7.0, but our application works with java 1.5, using websphere 6.1 which is java 1.5 only, so i dont want to write code in java 1.6 to find it is not working with java 1.5

Can't you use the -source flag and tell it to consider your code as 1.5?

So basically in eclipse set Source Compatibility to be 1.5 or Compiler Compliance settings to be 1.5 under java Compiler?

You would have to do both. Also make sure you are not using any methods introduced in Java6 or Java7. I can’t remember whether Eclipse will do that automatically.

The AMD version should work on Intel processors too. It's probably called "AMD" because AMD was the first comapny that added 64-bit instructions to their Intel-compatible processors. But current Intel CPUs implement the same 64-bit instructions.

I certainly had 32-bit JDK 1.5 installed on Windows XP x64. However, I've moved to Windows 7 since then and it's been some time since I installed that box. I don't recall having any problems installing either JDK 1.5 or JDK 6. I strongly believe I installed it using the file jdk-1_5_0_22-windows-i586-p.exe - the one I used to install it on Windows 7 x64 too.
