Java SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1

What is Java SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1?

Java Platform, Standard Edition or Java SE is a widely used platform for programming in the Java language. It is the Java Platform used to deploy portable applications for general use. Java SE consists of a virtual machine, which must be used to run Java programs, together with a set of libraries.


Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. It adds an extension to the user's Internet Explorer web browser. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is javaws.exe. The software installer includes 72 files and is usually about 505.82 KB (517,960 bytes).
