Java Support on Platforms

Java on Windows

Java on Win98SE
  • Java 1.5 is the latest version with Win98SE support, on a PC with sufficient memory ( Win98SE runs best with 512MB RAM ).
  • The installers of Java 1.6 SDK and Java 1.6 Runtime, when run on Win98SE, stop and complain about “c:\windows\system\shell32.dll” with the error messages

Fehler beim Starten des Programms. Die Datei JRE-6U21-WINDOWS-I586.EXE ist verknüpft mit dem fehlenden Export SHELL32.DLL:SHGetFolderPathA.

Error Starting Program. The JRE-6U21-WINDOWS-I586.EXE file is linked to missing export SHELL32.DLLHGetFolderPathA.

  • Newer versions of “shell32.dll”, i.e. “c:\winnt\system32\shell32.dll” of W2k, are explicitely refused to run on Win98SE. It is not known if there is any version of “shell32.dll” which lets Java 1.6 install on Win98SE.
  • There might be the option to install Java 1.6 on W2k or newer and then to transfer the installation to Win98SE....

Oracle Java 9 still supports Java plugins, though Status is deprecated
  • Oracle "JDK 9 and the Java Plugin" - “Oracle has deprecated the Java browser plugin in Java Standard Edition Development Kit 9 (JDK 9). Deprecation is a warning for developers to stop using this technology. JRE 9 will continue to provide the Java Plugin and support launching applets on browsers that still offer standard plugin support, but is only available for limited use and not recommended”.
