What is the correct version Java Runtime E to be used for the current SAS UE on Windows 10

[ Edited ]

Yesterday there was a Java update (Java 7 update 79 ) and I thoughtlessly OKeyed the update. Now clicking Oracle VM Virtual Box does not bring the UE. I am not sure which of these is the correct one ( jre-6u14-windows-i586, jre-7u79-windows-i586, jre-1_5_0_12-windows-i586-p)? 

I searched here but I am not hitting the answer. I knew there is write -up on this here.

 

Thanks.

May 23?

I hope you have figured this out by now.

 

note: I have installed SAS not in "C:\Program Files"

but in

C:\program-files  Real Programmers abhor spaces in folder names :-)

 

The answer is not where I thought it would be:

 

C:\program-files\SASHome\SASFoundation\9.4\nls\en\sasv9.cfg

 

the references in the configuration file used to point to specific java installation folders.

Now SAS has contained that set of problems by copying the current version of java

when you installed SAS into its own folder:

 

C:\program-files\SASHome\SASSecureJava\9.4

 

C:\program-files\SASHome\SASPrivateJavaRuntimeEnvironment\9.4\jre\bin
