Installing Java JDK on ReactOS

Post by fateluwa »

I've recently wanted to try ROS on virtualbox, to see how far I can take it for some common things I do.

One of them is compiling java (horrifying I know), so after installing Java 8 JRE (no problem) I tried to install Java 8 JDK (installer doesn't start).

Anyone had any luck installing JDK 8? I wouldn't mind running a newer JRE/JDK if those work, either.

I have installed Java 8 JDK, years ago, so if it does not install on the latest build, then a bug is at fault, which sometimes happens.

When you run the installer, it will show a window saying that, this operating system is not supported; just click OK and the install should begin.
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
The layman's guides to - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - ISO remaster.
They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

"Operating system not supported" pops up when trying to install the JRE. When trying to install the JDK, nothing pops up, with the installer seemingly stuck as a background process that does nothing.

OpenJDK can be installed however and seems to work (from the minimal playing around I've done)
