Thanks, as always, in advance.
I have been trying to re-install Java following being forced to uninstall any Java versions (don't ask me why). When I reinstall and alter the path accordingly, and compile, I constantly get the message that the jli.dll is missing when, in fact, it is not missing. Either that or I get a "missing javac" message. I have tried everything - both logged into the work network VPN and not. Interestingly, if I try to do a "pay as you go" Oracle support chat, "something" prevents the connection. Since I work for an ever increasingly secure medical IT company, it is likely there is virus software that I cannot even see, interferring with my installation that perhaps did not exist on the previous java installation I was using for a year now. I cannot do my Java nitpick homework once home, since I have other obligations after work and and am generally too exhausted to think after all that goes on here. I am very sad as I have enjoyed my Java lessons with the nitpickers so much and benefitted from them immensely. I have no idea how to get around this roadblock other than to ask developers on other teams how they got their Java installed and running. I am not "supposed" to be working in Java (according to my manager) and so it's possible that it's been fixed (as a sideline of this ever ramping security) so that I not CAN'T. Very depressed here. :>(

You've posted about the problem with jli.dll before.

So, you're trying to install it on a PC from your work? Do you have administrator rights on that PC? If not, then your IT support department at work probably deliberately makes it hard or impossible for you to install software. Especially if your company values IT security, they most likely won't let you install any kind of software by yourself.

So, if you really can't install it on your own personal computer at home, and you really want to install it on your work PC, you'll most likely have to ask your IT support department to help you with this. It's unlikely that Oracle will be able to help you with this, so I don't think it will help a lot to contact Oracle support.

I do have admin rights which I how I installed Java in the first place a year ago. Now I can't get it to work no matter what I try. I will ask the other teams how they installed theirs and if they ran into similar issues, got around it or whatever.

Shall we start from the beginning?
Tell us exactly in words of one syllable (or fewer), so even I can understand it how you are trying to install Java®. What have you found out about that dll (apart from the fact that I can't spell it?)
